[Intro] - G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D   [see below for riff]
[verse 1]
I rem[G]ember when rock was young,    
me and [Em]Susie had so much fun
Holding [C]hands and skimmin' stones  
had a [D]old gold Chevy & a place of my own
But the [G]biggest kick I ever got    
was doin' a [Em]thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the [C]other kids were rockin'
'round the clock we were [D]hoppin' and
boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well

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

G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D   [riff]
[verse 2]
But[G] 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

[cborus]
[verse 1]
