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