 G
I remember when rock was young,    
 Em
me and Susie had so much fun
 C
Holding hands and skimmin' stones  
 D
had a old gold Chevy & a place of my own
 G
But the biggest kick I ever got    
 Em
was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock
 C
While the other kids were rockin'
 D
'round the clock we were hoppin' and
boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well

 Em
 Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin'
 A7
when your feet just can't keep still
 D7
 I never had me a better time
 G
and I guess I never will.
 E
 Oh, Lawdy mamma those Friday nights
 A7
when Susie wore her dresses tight and
 D7C
 the Crocodile Rockin' was out of sight

 verse 2
 
 G
But the years went by and rock just died,
Susie went & left me for some foreign guy,
Long nights cryin' by the record machine dreamin'
of my Chevy & my old blue jeans but they'll
Never kill the thrills we've got burnin' up
to the Crocodile Rock,Learning fast till the weeks went past,
we really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well
