Dead Mans Curve chords
Jan and Dean 1964

Capo II

E 3x

      E
I was cruisin' in my Stingray late one night, 
        A
when an XKE pulled up on the right. 
    E
And rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag, 
    F#m
and challenged me then and there to a drag. 
  E
I said, "you're on, buddy, my mill's runnin' fine, 
      A
let's come off the line, now, at Sunset and Vine. 
         E
But I'll go you one better if you've got the nerve. 
      F#m               A
Let's race all the way, 
              
to Dead Man's  

E
Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play 
C#m
Dead Man's Curve, you must keep away 
A
Dead Man's Curve, I can hear 'em say: 
 E7    E    C         Am         E7
"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"  

    E
The street was deserted late Friday night, 
        A
we were buggin' each other while we sat out the light. 
   E
We both popped the clutch when the light turned green, 
    F#m
you shoulda heard the whine from my screamin' machine. 
  E
I flew past LaBrea, Schwab's, and Crescent Heights, 
    A
and all the Jag could see were my six tail lights. 
   E
He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve, 
      F#m                              
but I pulled her out and there we were, 
   A          
at Dead Man's  

E
Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play 
G
Dead Man's Curve, you must keep away 

           C
Well - the last thing I remember, Doc, I started to swerve. 
    Am
And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve. 
  F
I know I'll never forget that horrible sight. 
  Bb
I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right. 

 E7    E    C         Am         E7
"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"  

E
Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play 
C#m
Dead Man's Curve, you must keep away 
A
Dead Man's Curve, I can hear 'em say: 
 E7    E    C         Am         E7
"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"  3x
