Lyrics:

Hand me down a good old song
Brighten up my day
Sing to me a sweet melody
Chase my blues away
I recall sweet days gone by
We were living the dream
But now I'm worried all the time
The future's scaring me

Chorus:
Hey, it will be just you and me
Two for the road - two for the road

Babe, we've worked our lives away
Saving every dime
House and kids and bills to pay
The dream was yours and mine
You play that guitar soft and sweet
But there's trouble in your eyes
Without a job you're incomplete
Where does the future lie?
Hey, it will be just you and me
Two for the road - two for the road

Bridge:
I'm knocking my head against the world
Nothing's ever gonna be the same
Every day you get more fragile, girl
And we ain't got a dime to our name

So hand me down a good old song
We're leaving here tonight
Rest here in my open arms
Sorry can't make things right
The house is empty, cold and bare;
Foreclosed on all our dreams
I know you tried; I know you care
You're all that's real to me
Hey, it will be - just you and me
Two for the road - two for the road
