This song was written about driving a vintage 55 Chevy convertible.


- Lyrics by John Simmons and Jess Chavez

-----( Chorus )-----
You've never driven an older model
but i have
No, you've never driven and older model
but i have
( D, C )////

-----( Verse 1 )-----
When the sun comes up
she's got the drop top down
With the wind in your hair
as you drive through town

Her diamond tuck upholstery
is comfortable to me
She's no automatic
got three on the tree
( G, F )////

( to Chorus )

-----( Verse 2 )-----
She's fun to drive
with the standard transmission
Engine's tuned fine
with minimal emission

She's got low mileage
not leaking any oil
Tread on the tires
just what your heart desires

( to Chorus )

-----( Verse 3 )-----
Solid steel body
no fiberglass here
High chrome fender skirts
and oh yea, she flirts

On the bumper in the rear
check out the continental kit
Once she gets going
you'll never wanna' quit

-----( Refrain )-----
When you've driven an older model
you'll know what i mean
Behind the wheel
of that kinna' machine
( Em, D, C, G )

( to chorus )
