Verse 1:
      F#
I was cruising' in my Stingray late one night,
        B
When an XKE pulled up on the right
   F#
He rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag,
     C#
And challenged me then and there to a drag
   F#
I said "You're on buddy -- my mill's running fine,
      B
Let's come off the line now at Sunset and Vine
         F#
But I'll go you one better, if you've got the nerve,
      G#m              C#                   F#
Let's race all the way -- to Dead Man's Curve"

Chorus:
D#m
Dead man's curve
B
Dead man's curve

End of Chorus:
"Won't come back from dead man's curve"  (for the rhythm, follow the lyrics...)

Verse 2:
    F#
The street was deserted late Friday night;
        B
We were buggin' each other while we sat out the light
   F#
We both popped the clutch when the light turned green,
    C#
You shoulda heard the whine from my screaming' machine!
  F#
I flew past La Brea, Schwab's and Crescent Heights,
    B
And all the Jag could see were my six taillights
   F#
He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve,
      G#m                         C#                       F#
But I pulled her out and there we were - at Dead Man's Curve

Interlude (Spoken part) (HOLD all the chords):

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