I had a wife and kid, and I tried to settle downI just wanted to live an honest life on the edge of an honest town.But in the end they left me danglin’ danglin (in the night? )And I went crazy tryin’, tryin’ to walk that thin line.Oh chevrolet deluxe, I bought you with all your accessories,Oh chevrolet deluxe, I bought you with all your accessories,But mister, I can’t keep my payments upI lie awake at night and wonder if I’m tough enoughTo win back the hand of chevrolet deluxe.......They shut the power off down at the mill (the count the third time? )And these days when you ride down main streetIt’s just whitewashed windows and vacancy signsDid you ever think til the end your kids you would never believeThat if you would leave this old town, that it would leave me.My brother’s down in ft bragg, been there for half a yearMan he just got into too much trouble around here.Chevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,But mister, I can’t keep those payments upChevrolet deluxe, I lost my heart, I lost my guts..........She was sittin’ down at highway chevrolet out on route 3She was lookin’g like she was waitin’ just for meI worked all summer long and I saved my money upAnd I went down and I put that money downIn the fall, billy, (...? )I drove him down rode down together down to fort braggIn the years that he was gone (...? )(...? ) in the refinery (...? ) go alongChevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,(...? )Another year end gone, and billy he came home(...? )But it was like all of a sudden there was a curseThings got band and things got worseHmmm... went the power there down at the millHmmm... the thrill when they shut the power down at the mill(...? )Chevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,But I can’t keep those payments upChevrolet deluxe(...? ) you were so clear to seeNow when I wake in the mornging I don’t know what’s happening to meChevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,Mister I can’t keep those payments upChevrolet deluxe you let me down took the heart right out of meI saw her when I was 17 down at hansen’s chevroletI made up my mind to get her any how, any way.That whole summer I worked until I had enoughThen I went and put my money down on that chevrolet deluxe.[...]Chevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,But mister, I can’t keep those payments upChevrolet deluxe, I lost my heart, she took my gut...It don’t matter what you want, it don’t matter what you say,Are you tough enough not to play the way they play.
