One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song) [DVD]
by George Jones



I stopped off at the Quick Sack for some beer and cigarettes.
The old man took my money as he stared at my Corvette.
He said “I have one just like her son, in 1963, but a man down
at the bank took her from me.”

Oh she was hotter than a two-dollar pistol, she was the fastest thing around.
Long and lean, every young man’s dream, she turned every 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.

Then I handed him my keys and said, “Take her for a spin.” The old man scratched
his head and 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 bed that turns me on!”

Oh she was hotter than a two-dollar pistol, she was the fastest thing around.
Long and lean, every young man’s dream, she turned every head in town.
She was build and fun to handle, son, I’m glad that you dropped in. She reminds me of the one I loved back then. (repeat chorus)
