Anybody out there heard of a song by this title, or one containing the line? When I heard it mentioned, it was referred to as a C&W song, but Google turned up nothing.
Just curious.

Yeh.

I found these lyrics at rlyrics.com, which also has some pesky popups. Apparently, the song was recorded by Hank Snow and by Bob Dylan.

Ninety Miles An Hour (Down a Dead End Street)

I took you home from a party and we kissed in fun
A few stolen kisses and no harm was done
Instead of stopping when we could, we went right on
'Til suddenly we found that the brakes were gone

You belong to someone else and I do too
It's just crazy bein' here with you
Like a bad motorcycle with the devil in the seat
Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street
Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street

I didn't want to want you but now I have no choice
It's too late to listen to that warning voice
All I hear is thunder when two hearts beat
Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street
Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street

You're not free to belong to me
And you know that I could never be your own
But your lips on mine
Are like sweet, sweet wine
But we're heading for a wall of stone

Warning signs are flashing everywhere, we pay no heed
Instead of slowing down the pace, we're picking up speed
Disaster's getting closer every time we meet
Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street

Yeah, ninety miles an hour down a dead end street
Well, ninety miles an hour down a dead end street

Ingrid, looks like you got the song you were looking for. You might want to check out the song "Walk Away Joe" which has the line "ninety miles an hour down a lover's lane." Not really related to your original question, but I think you'll like it.

I think you may be looking for Hal Ketchum's "Small Town Saturday Night".

Samll Town Saturday Night
by Hal Ketchum


There's an Elvis movie on the marquee sign
We've all seen at least three times
Everybody's broke, Bobby's got a buck
Put a dollars worth of gas in his pickup truck
We're going' ninety miles an hour down a dead end road
What's the hurry, son... where you gonna go?
We're gonna howl at the moon, shoot out the light
It's a small town Saturday night
It's a small town Saturday night

Lucy's got her lipstick on a little too bright
Bobby's gettin' drunk and lookin' for a fight
Liquor on his breath and trouble on his mind
And Lucy's just a kid along for the ride
Got a six-pack of beer and a bottle of wine
Gotta be bad just to have a good time
They're gonna howl at the moon, shoot out the light
It's a small town Saturday night
It's a small town Saturday night

Bobby told Lucy, "The world ain't round...
Drops off sharp at the edge of town
Lucy, you know the world must be flat
'Cause when people leave town, they never come back"
They go ninety miles an hour to the city limits sign
Put the pedal to the metal 'fore they change their mind
They howl at the moon, shoot out the light
It's a small town Saturday night

They howl at the moon, shoot out the light
Yeah, it's a small town Saturday night
It's a small town Saturday night
It's a small town Saturday night

Hank's chords:

written by Hal Blair and Don Robertson

Albums: Best of Hank Snow and The Essential hank Snow

I took you [C] home from a party
and we kissed in fun,
a [G] few stolen kisses and [C] no harm was done.
Instead of [F] stopping when we could,
we [C] went right on,
until suddenly we found the [F] brakes were[C] gone.

You belong to someone else and I do too.
[G] It's just too crazy being [C] here with you.
As a [F] bad motorcycle with the [C] devil in the
seat,
Doin' 90 miles an hour down a [F] dead end [C] street.

I didn't want to want to now I have no choice.
It's too late to hear the warning voice.
All I hear is thunder as our two hearts beat,
Doin' 90 miles an hour down a dead end street.

[F] You're not free to belong to me
and you [C] know I can never be your own.
Your[F] lips on mine are like sweet sweet wine,
but we're [C] headed for a wall of [G] stone.

Warning signs are flying by us but we pay no heed,
Instead of slowing down the pace we keep pickin' up
the speed.
Disaster's getting closer every time we meet.
Doin' 90 miles an hour down a dead end street.
