Originally recorded by Warrens son Jordan for the "Enjoy Every Sandwich" tribute album, 
this is a song that Warren wrote and never released.

G D Em C G D Em C

    G                               D
I left my home in Monterey, just another low prospects man
     Am                                 Em
I'd rather work in a foundry than put fishes in a can
     C                 G                D
I'm thirty-five and I haven't traveled far
          Am                                     Em   C
And I've spent all my money on this misbegotten car

    Bm                         C
I'm up against it all like a leaf against the wind
           G        Em                 C
And this Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
    Am   G    D         C        G
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
   G7                                C
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend
        D    G    C     G        D             G
But my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again

D Em C G D Em C

        G                                     D
I was speeding south on ninety-nine when the manifold started smokin'
   Am                            Em            C
I ran her off the shoulder, and now the axle's broken
                      G                     D
It made a sound that cracked my heart in half
          Am                             Em   C
And with only half a half pint of vodka left

I'm up against it all like a leaf against the wind
And this Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down away
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend
But my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again

G D Em C G D Em C

     G         Em                 C
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
    Am   G     D        C        G
My Studebaker keeps on breaking down again
    G7                                 C
I thought I'd go to Fresno just to see my friend
        D     G   C      G       D              G
But my damn Studebaker keeps on breaking down again

G D Em C G D Em C

Thanks! I am playing your suggested chords on a uke, and it sounds great. I don't think this is quite 100% accurate, but it's almost perfect. I'd bet that it's 99% or better.
I do think the first C on line 7 (And this Studebaker...), should be a G. (In the "correction" window it is line 17.) There are also a few spots that I think could maybe use some slight adjustments, but I haven't yet put my finger on any better suggestions. (It may be that these are just nuances caused by the ukulele. I should probably play it on the guitar before I stick my neck out any further.)
To recap, great job and thank you very much. I am enjoying it, and it sounds great even on a uke.
