Yes, I really did see the old Ford years later.

They say the good times are gone
And they ain’t coming back
They say it’s been too long
And we’re way off track
But when the sun broke through this morning
I had to cover my eyes
In the silence after the storm
I realized
They had it all wrong
It isn’t all in the past
Better days aren’t gone
They’re here at last

I used to drive an old Ford
Man I loved that ride
All that I could afford
More rust than paint on the side
Never thought there was more to life
Than driving it away
’Til you leaned on my door one night
Looking like
You do today

You slid past all the rust
And came along for the ride
Right then my car didn’t mean as much
As the girl inside

It’ll all go fast
If you just let it all go
Learn to make the good times last
They’re all you’ll ever know

Three kids later
We gave away that Ford
To some eleventh grader
It was all he could afford

Time flies by like time always will
No use in asking why time won’t stand still
All you miss
Your first kiss
Your first ride
They don’t mean as much
As who you have by your side

Saw the old Ford in town
Had to rub my eyes
The rust had spread all around
I said a little goodbye
To the kid from long ago
That younger me
I guess you’ll never know
Who you’ll turn out to be
My wife caught a look in my eyes
As the radio played
Some looking back song about
Fast cars and better days

Are the good times gone?
My little girls asked
Nah, they had it all wrong
Better times are here at last

Almost all your songs are very good IMO, and I often enjoy them when I drive to work.
