                           "Dead Man's Curve"

Intro (horns doubled by guitar):  [3X, full band third time]

	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

Verse 1:

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

[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jan_and_dean/dead_mans_curve_crd.html ]
	Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play
	Dead Man's Curve, you must keep away
	Dead Man's Curve, I can hear 'em say:
	[C#]        [D]       [Bm]       C#     D     C# /B /A# /G#
	                                  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
	"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"

Verse 2:

	The street was deserted late Friday night
	We were buggin' each other while we sat out the light
	We both popped the clutch when the light turned green
	You shoulda heard the whine from my screamin' machine
	I flew past LaBrea, Schwab's, and Crescent Heights
	And all the Jag could see were my six taillights
	He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve
	But I pulled her out and there we were
	At Dead Man's Curve

Partial chorus:

	F#                                     [F#] G G# 
	Dead Man's Curve, it's no place to play
	A                 A7
	Dead Man's Curve

Dramatic interlude:

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

	[C#]        [D]       [Bm]       C#     D     C# /B /A# /G#
	                                  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
	"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"

[repeat chorus to fade]
