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.
