Private Malone – David Ball

Verse: 1
F
I was just out of the service thumbin' through the classifieds
        F
When an ad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye
F
The Lady didn't know the year or even if it ran
      F                  G             F
but I had that thousand dollars in my hand.
F
It was way back in the corner of this old ramshackle barn
      F
With thirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp
    G                                F
and when I pulled the cover off, It took away my breath
                                G
what she called a Chevy was a '66 Corvette.
   F                         G
And I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
    F                           F               G
but what a thrill I got, when I sat behind the wheel.
F
I opened up the glove box and that’s when I found the note
     F             G               F
The date was 1966 this is what he wrote:

CHORUS:
            F       G       F      G
He said my name is Private Andrew Malone
        F             G           F             G
and if you’re reading this then I didn't make it home
         F                G          F                 G
But for every dream that’s shattered, another one comes true
      F                            G
this car was once a dream of mine, now it belongs to you
      F             G            F             G
and though you may take her and make her your own
F                G    F        G       F
You'll always be rid-ing with Private Malone.

Verse: 2

F
Well it didn’t take me long, I had her running good
        F       
I loved to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood.
F
I had her shining like a diamond and I’d put the ragtop down
      F                  G             F
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town
F
The buttons on the radio didn’t seem to work quite right,
  F
But it picked up that oldies show, especially late at night  
 G                                F
Sometimes I thought that if I’d turn real quick I’d see,
                                G
A soldier riding shotgun, in the seat right next to me.


Chorus:

            F       G       F      G
It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
        F             G         F             G
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         F                G          F                 G
But for every dream that’s shattered, another one comes true
      F                            G
this car was once a dream of his, back when it was new
      F             G           F           G
and he told me to take her and make her my own
F                      G   F        G       F
And I was proud to be rid-ing with Private Malone


Verse: 3

F                                   G
One night it was rainin' hard and I took the curve to fast
F                          F                 G
I still don’t remember much about that fiery crash
F
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
       F                        G               F
they didn’t get his name, but I know without a doubt...

Chorus:

            F       G       F      G
It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
        F             G         F             G
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         F                G          F                 G
But for every dream that’s shattered, another one comes true
      F                            G
this car was once a dream of his, back when it was new
      F             G           F           G
And I know I wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t tagged along
F                   G    F         G      F
Oh, Thank-God I was rid-ing with Private Malone
