[Em]A thousand dollar car it [G]ain't worth nothin'
[D]A thousand dollar car it [C]ain't worth shit
[Em]Might as well take your t[G]housand dollars
[D]And set fire to [C]it
[Em]A thousand dollar car ain't [G]worth a dime
[D]You lose your thousand dollars e[C]very time
[Em]Oh why did [G]I ever [D]buy
A thousand dollar car[Em]
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
[Am]A thousand dollar car ai[D]n't gonna roll
[G]Until you put at [G/F#]least another th[C]ousand in the hole
[Am]Sink your money in it , and t[D]here you are
The owner [C]of a two thousand dollar t[D]housand 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.
