This song is about a guy who buys a "Chevy" which turns out to be a Corvette. In the car he finds a note written by a soldier named Private Andrew Malone. It says that if you are reading this it means he never made it home and that you will always be riding with Private Malone. The guy always feels Private Malone with him while he is driving, then one night he gets into a bad wreck and someone says they saw a soldier pull him from the crash - he knows that it was Private Malone.
