 another "classic" from the 70's. ya just don't get lyrics like
 'get some sleep and dream of rock and roll' anymore.....

                'Chevy Van' by Sammy Johns

     A     - x02220          riff
     Asus2 - x02200       -----------|
     Asus4 - x02230       -----------|
     Bm    - x24432       -----------|
     D     - x00232       -----------|
     E     - 022100       --------0--|

     riff  A  Asus2  Asus4
     riff  A  Asus2  Asus4

     (verse 1)
            riff   A Asus2 Asus4
     I gave a girl
            riff   A Asus2 Asus4
     a ride in my wagon
            riff   A Asus2 Asus4        riff A Asus2 Asus4
     she crawled in             and took control
            riff  A Asus2 Asus4         riff A Asus2 Asus4
     she was tired              as her mind was dragging
            riff  A Asus2     Asus4         riff A Asus2 Asus4
     I said get some sleep and dream of rock and roll

     Asus4                        E
     cause like a picture she was laying there
                       D            A
     moonlight dancing off her hair
     she woke up and took me by the hand
     shes gonna love me in my chevy van
         D         E            A
     and thats all right with me

     (verse 2 - chords same as verse 1 above)

     her young face was like that of an angel
     her long legs were tanned and brown
     better keep your eyes on the road son
     better slow this vehicle down

     (play the chorus again)

     (verse 3 - chords same as verse 1 above)

     I put her out in a town that was so small
     you could throw a rock from end to end
     a dirt road main street
     she walked off in bare feet
     its a shame I won't be passing through again

     (chorus again 2x,  but this time sing the
      last line as 'we made love in my chevy van and
      thats allright with me')
