Song Meaning
Verse 1
If he was still a young buck
He'd cause a big commotion
He got a good raise but he wanted that promotion
And, as usual that went to one of those younger men
He's got some news - there's still discrimination
And he'd change the rules if he could run this nation
But he's a workin' man
And workin' men ain't never presidents not with
One strong back, too much pride
Three times the ambition of four younger guys
Verse 2
And he's a rock
Still got a body like a tough Chevy truck
He was born in fifty-five, been workin' thirty long years
Still got enough drive to need four forward gears, but
Four in the floor ain't enough, young bucks keep passin' up
Fifty-five Chevy trucks
Verse 3
Funny how time
Is sometimes an advantage
An old bottle of wine is glorified as vintage
And "Classic" turns highway robbery into a heck of a deal
But forty good years on a man makes him forty
We make him the clown at his own birthday party
With black balloons
That tell the world he's over the hill just forget about
One strong back, too much pride
Three times the ambition of four younger guys
Verse 4
And he's a rock
Still got a body like a tough Chevy truck
He was born in fifty-five, been workin' thirty long years
Still got enough drive to need four forward gears, but
Four in the floor ain't enough, young bucks keep passin' up
Fifty-five Chevy trucks
