King Creole

Elvis Presley

 D
There's a man in New Orleans who plays Rock and Roll.
 D
 He's a guitar man with a great big soul.
 DD
He lays down a beat like a ton of coal. He goes by the name of King Creole.
 G7D
You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole,
 A7G7DG7A7
you know he's gone, gone, gone, hipshaking King Creole. 
 D
When the king starts to do it, it's as good as done.
 D
He holds his guitar like a tommy gun.
 D
He starts to growl from 'way down in his throat.
 D
He bends a string and "that's all she wrote".
 G7D
You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole,
 A7G7DG7A7
you know he's gone, gone, gone, hipshaking King Creole. 
 DD
Well he sings a song about a crawdad hole. He sings a song about a jelly roll.
 DD
He sings a song about meat and greens. He wails some blues about New Orleans.
 G7D
You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole,
 A7G7DG7A7
you know he's gone, gone, gone, hipshaking King Creole. 
 D
Well he plays something evil then, he plays something sweet.
 D
No matter what he plays, you got to get up on your feet.
 D
When hegets the rockin' fever, baby, heaven sakes,
 D
he don't stop playin' 'till the guitar breaks.
 G7D
You know he's gone, gone, gone, jumpin' like a catfish on a pole,
 A7G7DG7D
you know he's gone, gone, gone, hipshaking King Creole.
