INTRO: E Esus4 E x2

VERSE 1:

E                     Esus4             E
I was just out of the service thumbin' through the classifieds
A
When an ad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye
E               Esus4             E
The lady didn't know the year or even if it ran
A                         B7           E Esus4 E
But I had that thousand dollars in my hand

E                         Esus4           E
It was way back in the in corner of this old ramshackle barn
A
With thirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp
B7                              A
When I pulled the cover off it took away my breath
A                               B7          E
What she called a Chevy was a sixty-six corvette
C#m                         B
I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
A                          B7
What a thrill I got when I sat behind the wheel
E               Esus4                 E
I opened up the glove box and that's when I found the note
A                                    B7              E  
E
The date was nineteen sixty-six and this is what he wrote

CHORUS:

   C#m       B      A       B7
My name is private Andrew Malone
   C#m           B           A              B7
If your reading this then I didn't make it home
         G#m                C#m       F#m              B
But for every dream that's shattered another one comes true
      A                               B7
This car was once a dream of mine now it belongs to you
     C#m            B            A            G#m
And though you may take her and make her your own
F#m                  B7              E Esus4 EEsus4 E
You'll always be riding with private Malone

VERSE 2:

E                 Esus4         E
It didn't take me long at all I had her runnin' good
A
I loved to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
E         Esus4           E
I had her shinin' like a diamond and I'd put the rag top down
            A                                    B7               E
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town
        C#m                      B
The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right
    A                                B7
But it picked up that oldies show especially late at night
 E                  Esus4           E
I'd get the feelin' sometimes if I turned real quick I'd see
     A                           B7                E 
E
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me

CHORUS:
          C#m               B      A      B7
It was a young man named private Andrew Malone
     C#m            B            A            B7
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         G#m                 C#m             F#m              
 B
But for every dream that's shattered there's another that comes true
      A                           B7
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
       C#m         B            A          G#m
And he told me to take her and make her my own
F#m                      B7                E Esus4 EEsus4 E
And I was proud to be riding with private Malone

VERSE 3:
F#m                              B7
One night it was raining hard I took a curb to fast
E                             A              B7
I still don't remember much about that fiery crash
E                 Esus4              E
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
A                              B7              E 
E
They didn't get his name but I know without a doubt

CHORUS:

          C#m              B       A      B7
It was a young man named private Andrew Malone
     C#m            B           A             B7
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         G#m              C#m             F#m                B
But for every dream that shatters there's another that comes true
      A                           B7
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
       C#m            B              A             G#m
And I know I wouldn't be here if he hadn't tagged along
F#m                      B7                 E Esus4 E
Yeah that night I was riding with private Malone
F#m                   B7                  E Esus4 EEsus4 E
Oh thank God I was riding with private Malone


I couldn't find a tab that was quite right so I decided to throw this one together, it 
perfect to me.  Just listen to the song for the strum pattern and the intro riff and enjoy.
