Question
"I rememeber" was in the lyrics. this was a one hit wonder that went something like: I remember, we were riding (driving) along and hit something (in the air)?  The guitar or organ notes initated a two note emergency vehicle (high, low. Unfortunately thats all I can recall. The vocals were male. Any ideas?

Answer
Hi Jim,

I believe you're looking for Bloodrock's song called "D.O.A."  It reached #37 on the Top 100 in early 1971.  The lyrics are below.

Thanks for asking!  : - )

I remember we were flying along
And hit something in the air

Laying here
Looking at the ceiling
Someone lays a
Sheet across my chest

Something warm is
Flowing down my fingers
Pain is flowing
All through my back

I try to move my arm
And there's no feeling
And when I look I see
There's nothing there

The face beside me stopped
It totally bleeding
The girl I knew has
Such a distant stare

[CHORUS]
I remember we were flying along
And hit something in the air
I remember we were flying along
And hit something in the air

Then I looked straight
At the attendant
His face is pale
As it can be

He bends and whispers
Something softly
He says there's
No chance for me

[repeat CHORUS]

Life is flowing
Out my body
Pain is flowing
Out with my blood

The sheets are red and
Moist where I'm lying
God in Heaven
Teach me how to die

[repeat CHORUS]
