Corvette Song
Written by Gary Lee Gentry
As recorded by George Jones

1. I stopped off at the Quik-Sack

For some beer and cigarettes.

The old man took my money

As he stared at my Corvette.

He said, "I had one just like her, son,

In nineteen-sixty-three

'Til a man down at the bank took her from me."


1st Refrain:

"Oh, she was hotter than a two-dollar pistol,

She was the fastest thing around.

Long and lean, ev'ry young man's dream.

She turned ev'ry head in town.

She was built and fun to handle, son.

I'm glad that you dropped in.

She reminds me of the one I loved back then."


2. Then I handed him my keys and said,

"Here. Take her for a spin."

The old man scratched his head,

And then he looked at me and grinned.

He said, "Son, you just don't understand.

It ain't the car I want.

It's the brunette in your 'Vette that turns me on."


2nd Refrain:

"I had one that was hotter than a two-dollar pistol,

She was the fastest thing around.

Long and lean, ev'ry young man's dream.

She turned ev'ry head in town.

She was built and fun to handle, son.

I'm glad that you dropped in.

She reminds me of the one I loved back then."

3rd Refrain:

"Lord, she was hotter than a two-dollar pistol,

She was the fastest thing around.

Long and lean, ev'ry young man's dream.

She turned ev'ry head in town.

She was built and fun to handle, son.

I'm glad that you dropped in.

She reminds me of the one I loved back then.

She reminds me of the one I loved back then.
