"The Dark End of the Street" is a 1967 soul song written by American songwriters Dan Penn and Chips Moman and first recorded by American singer James Carr. Shortly afterwards, fellow American soul singer Percy Sledge included his version of the song on his 1967 album The Percy Sledge Way but, as a single, it did not chart as high as the version by Carr. In the years since Carr's original version, many other artists have recorded versions of the song.
