Ray Boltz – Thrown Away lyrics

Thrown Away
Words by Ray Boltz, Music by Steve Millikan and Ray Boltz
Grandpa and me, every week or so
Wed go walking down a country road
Looking for something
Others drove right past
Maybe they were late
And they were dogging the throttle
Maybe they just
Didnt notice the bottles
Shining like diamonds in the grass
We would pick them up
And wed cash 'em in
Hed look at me and Id look at him
And hed say
CHORUS:
Thrown away
Can you believe the things
They toss aside
And leave em where they lay?
Oh, but they can be saved
If you will take the time
And try to find the good
Along the way
Oh, what this world throws away
Many years later
When my age had doubled
I met a man and his name was Trouble
He said, Son, Ill give you some advice
A family is fine
And theres a time you need them
But sure enough there will come
A time to leave em
You know you only get one life
He was a lonely man
Without a single friend
He looked at me and I looked at him
And I said,
CHORUS
And maybe someday
When the little ones have grown
I may have a grandchild of my own
And if I do, I can promise you
One day well walk down a country road
CHORUS
