Surfer Joe

Capo on 1st fret
	  		Surfer Joe:The Surfaris. 
Top of the charts in 1962 & '63. 
B-side of the record was the instrumental,  
'Wipe Out.' 

#1. ( 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.
