The Bottle Rockets
1000 Dollar Car
>From the album The Brooklyn Side
Attempted transcription by Joe Wachtel



The verse chords seem to be Em///G///D///C///
The chorus chords are Em/G/D
The bridge chords are Am///D///G/G\F#/C///
      Am///D///C///D///

Em                       G
A thousand dollar car it ain't worth nothin'
D                        C
A thousand dollar car it ain't worth shit
Em                       G
Might as well take your thousand dollars
D               C
And set fire to it 
Em     G
A thousand dollar car ain't worth a dime
D C
You lose your thousand dollars every time
Em         G      D
Oh why did I ever buy
                       Em
A thousand dollar car

A thousand dollar car is gonna let you down
More than it's ever gonna get you around
Replace your gaskets and paint over your rust
You'll still end up with something that you'll never trust
A thousand dollar car's life was through 
'Bout fifty thousand miles before it got to you
Oh why did I ever buy
A thousand dollar car

Bridge
Am D
A thousand dollar car ain't gonna roll
G                G/F#            C
Until you put at least another thousand in the hole 
Am                           D
Sink your money in it , and there you are
          C                         D
The owner of a two thousand dollar thousand dollar car

Verse 3

If you only got a thousand dollars
You might as well buy a good guitar
Learn how to play, it'll get you farther
Than any old thousand dollar car
If a thousand dollar car was to worth a damn
Then why would anybody ever spend ten grand
Oh why did I ever buy
A thousand dollar car

That's it.  Hope everyone enjoys it.
