The Car Was The One

Intro: D C Em G  x4

D

                               C
In summer '63 I was staying alive
Em                                D 
hanging at the races, hoping to drive
                                                    C
When they were done with the weekend and loading the cars
Em                    G                     D
I couldn't get a pass so I went to the bar


                                C
I'm up in the corner nursing a beer
Em                                      D
who should come laughing and joking in here
                                               C
but Bobby Brown, the winner of the sports car race
Em                             G                   D
with some friends and a girl, man, she lit up the place


G                    A      D
Bobby was a wild boy - one summer
   G                    A           D
he knocked down a motel wall with a hammer
     G                 A           D
He'd do anything - one night for a bet
   G                      A            D   A
he raced through the cornfields in a Corvette

Em G D C Em G D

                                             C
I thought it's got to be a thrill to be like that
         Em            G                     D
with the beautiful girl and be king of the track
                                       C
But the truth is when all was said and done
           Em             G                   D    C
it was his Cobra I wanted - the car was the one
           Em             G                   D    C   Em  G
It was his Cobra I wanted - the car was the one
                  D   C  Em G
The car was the one  
                  D   C  Em G
The car was the one

D C Em G  x2
