Verse 1: (all A)
There's a man in New Orleans who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man with a great big soul
He lays down a beat like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole

Chorus:
              D
You know he's gone, gone, gone
                            A
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
              E7
You know he's gone, gone, gone
D                   A
Hip shaking King Creole

Verse 2: (all A)
When the king starts to do it it's as good as done
He holds his guitar like a tommy gun
He starts to growl from way down his throat
He bends a string and that's all she wrote

CHORUS

Verse 3: (all A)
Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about a pork and greens
He sings some blues about New Orleans

CHORUS

Instrumental: A  D A E7 D A

Verse 4: (all A)
Well he plays something evil then he plays something sweet
No matter how he plays you got to get up on your feet
When he gets the rockin' fever baby heaven sakes
He don't stop playin' til his guitar breaks

CHORUS

              E7
You know he's gone, gone, gone
D                   A
Hip shaking King Creole
