My Old Car

	  		

Intro: Dm G 

#1. 
C                      A     D 
Twenty long miles from town, my old car  
      G 
broke down. 
    F         G           C 
The clutch is shot and it sounded so hot, 
F            C 
oh, what I'd give to be home. 

#2. 
C                   A     D  
Nineteen miles from town, my old car broke  
G 
down. 
    F                    C      Am    F 
The battery's dead, man, like I said, oh,  
         Am7        C    Bb 
what I'd give to be home. 

#3. 
A                         D 
Eighteen miles from town, my old car broke  
G 
down. 
    F          C                         Am 
The fan belt's slipping and the engine's missing. 
Bb           G                           C 
Oh, what I'd give to be home, resting my bones. 

#4. 
C                    A     D                G 
Seventeen miles from town, my old car broke down. 
F       C                         Am 
Just my luck, I got the fuel pump stuck. 
F            G          C 
Oh, what I'd give to be home. 

Bridge: 
Db       F                G      Dm7         F 
When the sun's so high up in the sky and I'm trying  
                  C 
to get home to my baby. 
       Dm7                        G 
When I get that far I'm gonna get rid of this car. 
            D                         G 
It's got to go, it's got to go..and I don't mean maybe. 

#5. 
C                  A     D                  G 
Sixteen miles from town, my old short broke down. 
   F      C           Am            G 
My tire's down and no spare around..oh, what I'd  
           C 
give to be home, oh, yeah.

Fifteen miles from town, my old car broke down. 
    F                    C      Am    F 
The battery's dead, man, like I said, oh,  
         Am7        C    Bb A D C 
what I'd give to be home...(Fade.)
