Black Denim Trousers:The Cheers.
#6 on BB Hot 100 on CAPITOL Records
in 1955. ***(The very first 'biker' song.)***

INTRO: (Drums) Ab C Ab Cm

CHORUS:
G       Cm                       Eb
He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
                                   Cm           
and a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back.
Cm                             Eb
He had a hopped-up 'cycle that took off like a gun.
     Gm7                    C
That fool was the terror of Highway 101.

#2.
         Cm               Eb
Well, he never washed his face and he never combed 

his hair.
                                 C
He had axle grease embedded underneath his fingernails.
       Ab            C         Gb            Gm7
On the muscle of his arm was a red tattoo, a picture 
                    C              Cm
of a heart saying, 'Mother, I love you.'

#3.
Cm                                Ab           
He had a pretty girlfriend by the name of Mary Lou
                                Cm
but he treated her just like he treated all the rest.
Ab  Cm                         Gb
And everybody pitied her cause everybody knew,
   Ab                            Cm
he loved that doggone motorcycle best.

CHORUS:
G       Cm                       Eb
He wore black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
                                   Cm           
and a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back.
Cm                             Eb
He had a hopped-up 'cycle that took off like a gun.
     Gm7                    C
That fool was the terror of Highway 101.


INTERLUDE: Db Dm Cm Ab Cm

#4.
Cm                                       Eb
Mary Lou, poor girl, she pleaded and she begged him 

not to leave.
                                     Cm
She said, 'I've got a feeling if you ride tonight 

I'll grieve.'
                                        Fm             
But her tears were shed in vain and her every word was lost
       Ab                           Cm
in the rumble of his engine and the smoke from his exhaust.

#5.
Cm                        Gm7              Ab
Then he took off like the devil, there was fire in his eyes.
   Gm7              Ab               C                Cm
He said, 'I'll go a thousand miles before the sun can rise.'
       Ab                              Db
But he hit a screamin' diesel that was California-bound,
    Eb                    Ab                 C
and when they cleared the wreckage, all they found..

OUTRO:
        Cm                       Ab
Was his black denim trousers and motorcycle boots
                    Eb             Ab    C         
and a black leather jacket with an eagle on the back.
Cm                                     G
But they couldn't find the 'cycle that took off like a gun.
                                   Cm
And they never found the terror of Highway 101..(Fade.)



A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
