Throw Away
(Rogers)

Cody had a business suit he could not throw away
Seems that it's the only one could get him through his working day
Because in the pocket he could still detect the smell
Of the sweet perfume on the girl from painting school
And it was the one he loved
(he loved that business suit)
It was the one he loved...

Laney had a pickup truck they could not tow away
'Cause even though it did not run, she dreamed that it would start someday
To high-drive her across America to meet the agent who told her
She should be in Hollywood
And it was the one she loved
(she loved that pickup truck)
It was the one she loved...

Nora had a baseball bat she would not stow away
She'd brokena pinata with it with some hombre down by Mexico way
And she might need it when she made it back to
Write her masterpiece and live so happily
With the one she loved
(she loved that baseball bat)
With the one she loved...

And I have got an old guitar I will not throw away
It never wants to stay in tune, but might be worth a lot someday
Because wouldn't anybody want the first guitar
Of a boy who finally threw it all away
In the name of the one he loves
(I love that old guitar)
Of the one I love...
