Dead Man's Curve:Jan And Dean.
Top of the charts in '64.
#1.
C
I was cruisin' in my Stingray late one night,
        F
When an XKE pulled up on the right.
    C
And rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag,
    G
And challenged me then and there to a drag.
  C
I said, you're on, buddy, my mill's runnin' fine,
      F
let's come off the line, now, at Sunset and Vine.
         C
But I'll go you one better if you've got the nerve,
      Dm                 G             C
Let's race all the way...to Dead Man's Curve.
CHORUS:
C
Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play,
Am
Dead Man's Curve, you must keep away,
F
Dead Man's Curve, I can hear 'em say..
G     Ab             Fm         G 
Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve.
#2.
C
The street was deserted late Friday night,
        F
We were buggin' each other while we sat out the light.
   C
We both popped the clutch when the light turned green,
    G
You shoulda heard the whine from my screamin' machine.
  C
I flew past LaBrea, Schwab's, and Crescent Heights,
            F
And all the Jag could see were my six taillights.
   C
He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve,
      Dm                          G
But I pulled her out and there we were..
              C
At Dead Man's Curve 

CHORUS:(Spoken - Ad Lib)
          C
Well..the last thing I remember, Doc, I started to swerve,
    F
And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve.
  C
I know I'll never forget that horrible sight,
  Dm                    G                         C
I guess I found out for myself, that everyone was right.
      G     Ab             Fm         G
(Sung)Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve.(x3)

CHORUS:

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
