See the U.S.A. in Your Chevrolet

As an avid collector of sheet music, and lover of old cars, I was excited to find two copies of music put out by General Motors, both with the song “See the U.S.A. in Your Chevrolet.” And they even have ukulele tablature!!

The first printing is from 1948, with a gorgeous cover illustration by Disney artist and illustrator Eyvind Earle.

The second is a thicker booklet from 1964, with a selection of illustrated lyrics from America’s favorite popular songs, as well as an ode to (and advertisements for) Chevrolet. The illustrator is unknown.

See and hear Dinah Shore singing the song at the Vintage Chevrolet Archives
