Verse

1 GI was just out of the service thumbin' through the classifieds When an Cad that said old Chevy somehow caught my eye GThe Lady didn't know the year or even if it ran but I Chad that thousand dDollars in my hGand. GIt was way back in the corner of this old ramshackle barn With tChirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp and Dwhen I pulled the cover off, It tCook away my breath what she called a Chevy was a '6D6 Corvette. AndC I felt a little guilty asD I counted out the bills but Gwhat a thrill I got, when I Csat behind the wDheel. GI opened up the glove box and that’s when I found the note The dCate was 1966 tDhis is what he wGrote:

Chorus

He said my nGame is PDrivate ACndrew MDalone and if yGou’re reading Dthis then I Cdidn't make itD home But for eGvery dream that’sD shattered,C another one comesD true this cCar was once a dream of mine, Dnow it belongs to you and thGough you may tDake her and mCake her your oDwn GYou'll always be Drid-iCng with PDrivate MGalone.

Verse

2 GWell it didn’t take me long, I had her running good I loved Cto hear those horses thunder underneath her hood. GI had her shining like a diamond and I’d put the ragtop down All thCe pretty girls woulDd stop and staGre as I drove her through town GThe buttons on the radio didn’t seem to work quite right, BuCt it picked up that oldies show, especially late at night SDometimes I thought that if I’d tuCrn real quick I’d see, A soldier riding shotgun, in theD seat right next to me.

Chorus

It was a youGng man nDamed PriCvate AnDdrew Malone Who fougGht for his couDntry and nCever made it hDome But for eGvery dream that’sD shattered,C another one comesD true this cCar was once a dream of his, bDack when it was new and heG told me to taDke her and mCake her my oDwn GAnd I was proud to be rDid-iCng with PDrivate MGalone

Verse

3 COne night it was rainin' hard and I Dtook the curve to fast GI still don’t remember muchC about that fiery Dcrash GSomeone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out they diCdn’t get his name, but I Dknow without a dGoubt...

Chorus

It was a youGng man nDamed PriCvate AnDdrew Malone Who fougGht for his couDntry and nCever made it hDome But for eGvery dream that’sD shattered,C another one comesD true this cCar was once a dream of his, bDack when it was new And I Gknow I wouldn’Dt be here ifC he hadn’t tDagged along GOh, Thank-God I was Drid-iCng with PrDivate MGalone
