Riding With Private Malone
Recorded by David Ball
written by Wood Newton and Thom Shepherd

C
I was just out of the service thumbing through the classifieds
F
When an ad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye
C
The Lady didn't know the year or even if it ran
F G7 C
But I had that thousand dollars in my hand


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
G7 F
And when I pulled the cover off it took away my breath
G7 C
What she called a Chevy was a '66 Corvette

Dm G7
And I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
C F G7
But what a thrill I got when I sat behind the wheel
C
I opened up the glove box and that’s when I found the note
F G7 C
The date was 1966 and this is what he wrote

Am G7 F G7
He said my name is Private Andrew Malone
Am G7 F G7
And if you’re reading this then I didn't make it home
Em Am Dm G7
But for every dream that’s shattered another one comes true
Dm G7
This car was once a dream of mine now it belongs to you
Am G7 F Em
And though you may take her and make her your own
Dm G7 C
You'll always be rid-ing with Private Malone


Well it didn’t take me long at all I had her running good
F
I loved to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
C
I had her shining like a diamond and I’d put the ragtop down
F G7 C
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town

Am G7
The buttons on the radio didn’t seem to work quite right
C F G7
But it picked up that oldies show especially late at night
C
I'd get the feelings sometimes if I’d turn real quick I’d see
F G7 C
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me

Am G7 F G7
It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
Am G7 F G7
Who fought for his country and never made it home
Em Am Dm G7
But for every dream that’s shattered another one comes true
Dm G7
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
Am G7 F G7
And he told me to take her and make her my own
Dm G7 C
And I was proud to be rid-ing with Private Malone

F G7
One night it was raining hard and I took the curve to fast
C F G7
I still don’t remember much about that fiery crash
C
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
F G7 C
They didn’t get his name but I know without a doubt

Am G7 F G7
It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
C G7 F G7
Who fought for his country and never made it home
C G7 F G7
But for every dream that’s shattered another one comes true
F G7
This car was once a dream of his back when it was new
C G7 F G7
And I know I wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t tagged along
C G7 C
That night I was rid-ing with Private Malone

G7 C
That night I was rid-ing with Private Malone
