The chords for this song have already been posted, and in the older version the chords for the refrain were correct. However, that version's verse chords were either over-simplified or incorrect. This version of the song includes those refrain chords, but corrects the chords for the verses, at least as best as I can tell. This is a beginner's interpretation of the song, but I think it sounds better than the version played in the key of E. I think there are some minor variations in the later verses, probably sharps, but I can't find them. If anyone out there has improvements to these chords, please submit them, this is a great song. INTRO: G C G I was just out of the service thumbin' through the classifieds G C G When an ad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye G C G The Lady didn't know the year or even if it ran C D G but I had that thousand dollars in my hand. FIRST VERSE: G D C G It was way back in the corner of this old ramshackle barn G C G With thirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp D C and when I pulled the cover off, It took away my breath G C D G what she called a Chevy was a '66 Corvette. C D G C And I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills G C D C but what a thrill I got, when I sat behind the wheel. G D C G I opened up the glove box and that’s when I found the note C D C G The date was 1966 this is what he wrote: CHORUS: G D C D He said my name is Private Andrew Malone G D C D and if you’re reading this then I didn't make it home G D C D But for every dream that’s shattered, another one comes true C D this car was once a dream of mine, now it belongs to you G D C D and though you may take her and make her your own G D C D G You'll always be rid-ing with Private Malone. Second Verse: Well it didn't take me long at all, I had her runnin' good I loved to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood I had her shining like a diamond and I'd put the rag top down All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town. The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right but it picked up that oldies show especially late at night I'd get the feeling sometimes if I turned real quick I'd see A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me. Third Verse (no first half): Well one night it was raining hard I took the curb too fast I still don't remember much about that firey crash But someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out They didn't get his name, but I know without a doubt
