MY OLD CAR
(John Kumjian, © 2008)

INTRO; A—f#mi7—G—bmi/E (repeat) Guitar only for intro and 1st verse

My Chevrolet has a broken horn, paint jobs bad, the seats are torn
But it’s my old car…
Wipers don’t work, broken radio, lots of rust; runs bad in the snow
But it’s my old car…
My old car, it’s alright…I’m in it day and night
I think it’s out of sight, my old car…

ENTER PIANO; INTRO CHORDS (SAME FOR VERSE)

Got this car from my old man, made me a part of the American plan
Yes my old car…
He never gave much to me, but my Corvair and ignition key
For my old car…

E f#mi D/F3 A9
My old car is my friend, it’s with me to the end,
E G bmi7 A
Something I can depend on, my old car…

PIANO SOLO (CMAJ7-F9)
HARMONICA SOLO ON INTRO CHORDS

I remember when I hit that deer, I seem to hit one every year,
with my old car…

The mileage stinks, the tires are bad; overall, it looks pretty sad
But it’s my old car…
My old car is all I know, never will let it go
It’s my modern-day Van Gogh, my old car
…my old car
…my old car
