I had a wife and kid, and I tried to settle down
I 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 up
I lie awake at night and wonder if I'm tough enough
To 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 street
It's just whitewashed windows and vacancy signs
Did you ever think til the end your kids you would never believe
That if you would leave this old town, that it would leave me.

My brother's down in ft bragg, been there for half a year
Man 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 up
Chevrolet deluxe, I lost my heart, I lost my guts....
......
She was sittin' down at highway chevrolet out on route 3
She was lookin'g like she was waitin' just for me
I worked all summer long and I saved my money up
And I went down and I put that money down

In the fall, billy, (...? )
I drove him down rode down together down to fort bragg
In the years that he was gone (...? )
(...? ) in the refinery (...? ) go along

Chevrolet 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 curse
Things got band and things got worse
Hmmm... went the power there down at the mill
Hmmm... 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 up
Chevrolet deluxe

(...? ) you were so clear to see
Now when I wake in the mornging I don't know what's happening to me

Chevrolet deluxe, I bought her with all the accessories,
Mister I can't keep those payments up
Chevrolet deluxe you let me down took the heart right out of me

I saw her when I was 17 down at hansen's chevrolet
I made up my mind to get her any how, any way.
That whole summer I worked until I had enough
Then 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 up
Chevrolet 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.
