(The Corvette Song)   The One I Loved Back Then


D                                       G             D
I stopped off at the quicksack for some beer & cigarettes

     G                 D                          A
This old man took my money as he stared at my Corvette

    D                                      G
He said, I had one just like her son, a 1963

          D               A                  D
Til' the man down at the bank took her from me


chorus:


I had one that was hotter than a two dollar pistol

               G             D
she was the fastest thing around

G                    D
Long and lean every young man's dream

                          A
She turned every head in town

         D
She was built in from the handles

                              G
Son, I'm glad that you walked in

                      D       A         D
She reminds me of the one I loved back then

D                                        A               D
Well I handed him my keys and said, here take her for a spin

    G                      D                               A
The old man scratched his head, then he looked at me and grinned

         D                                               G
He said son you just don't understand it ain't the car I want

                           D          A       D
It's the brunette in your vette that turns me on

About the artist behind Corvette Song Chords:

George Glenn Jones (born September 12, 1931), is an award-winning American country music singer known for his long list of hit records, his distinctive voice and phrasing, and his marriage to Tammy Wynette.

Jones has had more songs than any other singer on the US Country charts – 167 as of November, 2005.[citation needed] He has also had the most Top 40 Hits – 143 – and is second to Eddy Arnold with the most Top 10 Hits – 78.[citation needed] Over the past twenty years, Jones has frequently been referred to as "the greatest living country singer"[1] and "the Rolls-Royce of country singers." Frank Sinatra once called him "the best white male singer."[citation needed] The country music scholar Bill C. Malone writes, "For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved."

Throughout his long career, Jones made headlines often as much for tales of his drinking, stormy relationships with women, and violent rages as for his prolific career of making records and touring. His wild lifestyle led to Jones missing many performances, earning him the nickname "No Show Jones", but Jones never hid or denied his faults and now, with the help of his fourth wife, he has been "clean" for years. Jones clocked up scores of hits during his career, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists.
