[Verse 1]
G
I was just out of the service thumbin' through the classifieds
C
When an ad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye
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

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

[Chorus]
   Em       D      C       D
My name is private Andrew Malone
   Em           D           C              D
If your reading this then I didn't make it home
         Bm                Em       Am              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
     Em            D            C            Bm
And though you may take her and make her your own
Am                  D               G
You'll always be riding with private Malone

[Verse 2]
G
It didn't take me long at all I had her runnin' good
C
I loved to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
G
I had her shinin' like a diamond and I'd put the rag top down
            C                                    D                G
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town
        Am                      D
The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right
     G                                C                D
But it picked up that oldies show especially late at night
 G
I'd get the feelin' sometimes if I turned real quick I'd see
     C                           D                 G
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me

[Chorus]
          Em               D      C      D
It was a young man named private Andrew Malone
     Em            D            C            D
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         Bm                 Em             Am                 D
But for every dream that's shattered there's another that comes true
      C                           D
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
       Em         D            C          Bm
And he told me to take her and make her my own
Am                      D                 G
And I was proud to be riding with private Malone

[Verse 3]
Am                              D
One night it was raining hard I took a curb to fast
G                             C              D
I still don't remember much about that fiery crash
G
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
C                              D               G
They didn't get his name but I know without a doubt

[Chorus]
          Em              D       C      D
It was a young man named private Andrew Malone
     Em            D           C             D
Who fought for his country and never made it home
         Bm              Em             Am                D
But for every dream that shatters there's another that comes true
      C                           D
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
       Em            D              C             Bm
And I know I wouldn't be here if he hadn't tagged along
Am                      D                  G
Yeah that night I was riding with private Malone
Am                   D                   G
Oh thank God I was riding with private Malone
