Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I was just out of the service thumbing through the classifieds
When an ad that said old Chevy, somehow caught my eye
The lady didn't know the year or even if it ran
But I had that thousand dollars in my hand

Circle left
I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
Allemande left and swing then promenade the ring
I opened up the glove box and that's when I found the note
The date was nineteen sixty six and this is what he wrote


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (Side) two couples promenade
Go halfway around the ring
Walk in and square thru four hands I sing
Go all the way, do the right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, slide thru
Square thru and go 3/4 round you know
Swing with that corner girl and promenade back home
You'll always be riding with Private Malone


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Sides face, grand square
Well it didn't take me long at all, I had her running good
I love to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
I had her shining like a diamond and I'd put the rag top down
Those pretty girls would stop and stare...

Circle left
The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right
Allemande left and swing, promenade tonight
I'd get the feeling sometimes if I turned real quick I'd see
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me


CLOSER

Four ladies promenade
Walk around the ring, get back and swing give your man a swing
Join your hands and circle to the left around in time
Allemande left and weave the ring so fine
One night it was raining hard and I took the curve too fast
Swing with your girl and promenade at last
I know I wouldn't be here if he hadn't tagged along
That night I was riding with Private Malone

Riding With Private Malone Lyrics ID: 3766

I was just out of the service thumbing through the classifieds
When an ad that said, "Old Chevy" somehow caught my eye
The lady didn't know the year or even if it ran
But I had that thousand dollars in my hand

It was way back in the corner of this old ramshackle barn
With thirty years of dust and dirt on that green army tarp
And when I pulled the cover off, it took away my breath
What she called a Chevy was a Sixty-six Corvette

I felt a little guilty as I counted out the bills
What a thrill I got when I sat behind the wheel
I opened up the glove box and that's when I found the note
The date was Nineteen-Sixty-Six and this is what he wrote

He said, "My name is Private Andrew Malone
And if you're reading this, then I didn't make it home
But for every dream that shattered, another one comes true
This car was once a dream of mine, now it belongs to you
And though you may take her and make her your own
You'll always be riding with Private Malone"

Well it didn't take me long at all, I had her running good
I love to hear those horses thunder underneath her hood
I had her shining like a diamond and I'd put the rag top down
All the pretty girls would stop and stare as I drove her through town

The buttons on the radio didn't seem to work quite right
But it picked up that oldies show, especially late at night
I'd get the feeling sometimes, if I turned real quick I'd see
A soldier riding shotgun in the seat right next to me

It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
Who fought for his country and never made it home
But for every dream that's shattered, another one comes true
This car was once a dream of his, back when it was new
He told me to take her and make her my own
And I was proud to be riding with Private Malone

One night it was raining hard, I took the curve too fast
I still don't remember much about that fiery crash
Someone said they thought they saw a soldier pull me out
They didn't get his name, but I know without a doubt

It was a young man named Private Andrew Malone
Who fought for his country and never made it home
But for every dream that's shattered, another one comes true
This car was once a dream of his, back when it was new
And I know I wouldn't be here if he hadn't tagged along
Oh, thank God, I was riding with Private Malone

Lyrics by Wood A. Newton and Thom Edward Shepherd.
Recorded by David Ball.
