Surfer Joe:The Surfaris.
Top of the charts in 1962 & '63.
B-side of the record was the instrumental, 
'Wipe Out.'

#1. (Capo 1st fret for original.)
G
Down in Doheny where the surfers all go,
          C
there's a big bleach blondie, named Surfer Joe.
     G
He's got a green surfboard and a Woody to match,
              D
and when he's ridin' the freeway's, 
                   G
man, is he hard to catch.

CHORUS:
G                                C
Surfer Joe..Now, look at him go..whoa..whoa..whoa,
                G
Surfer, Surfer, Surfer Joe-o-o..Go man go-o-o.
D              C          G   D
Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, Surfer Joe.

#2.
G
I saw him one day flyin' down the road,
     C
with tenty-six surfboards and a hundred pound load.
  G
I knew where he was headin,' tryin' to reach..
    D                                 G
the playground of the surfers, Doheny Beach.

CHORUS:

#3.
G
He went down to Huntington Beach one week,
        C
for the annual surfer's convention meet.
G  
Hangin' five and walkin' the nose and when 
    D                             G
the meet was over, the trophy was Joe's.

CHORUS:

#4.
G
Surfer Joe joined Uncle Sam's Marines today,
     C
they stationed him at Pendleton, not far away.
     G
they cut off his big blonde locks, I'm told,
            D                              G
and when he went on manoeuvers, Joe caught cold.

CHORUS:

#5.
G
Now, no, that didn't stop him, or keep him away.
         C
When the surf was up, he still had his day.
     G
They caught him at the Trestle, down by the sea,
    D                        G   
and now, poor Joe is doin' K.P.

CHORUS:


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
