Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Alligator  Grateful Dead

[C]Sleepy Alligator in the[F] noon day [Am]sun,
[C]Lyin' by the river just like he [F]usually [Am]done.
[C]Call for his whiskey, he can[F] call for his [Am]tea,
[C]Call all he want to, but he [F]can't call [Am]me.

[G]Oh no! I've been there before,
[A]And I ain't gonna come around here no more.

[C]       [Dm]       [F]      [C]    [C7]             
[F](Hung up, waitin' for [C]windy day)
[F](Hung up, waitin' for [C]windy day)
[F]Creepy alligator coming [C]all around the bend,
[F]Shoutin' about the times when we was [C]mutual friends,
[F]I checked my memory and I[C] checked it quick, yes I will.
[F]I checked it runnin' some old [C]kind of trick.
[Dm]Oh no! Well I've[A] been there before,
[G7]And I ain't gonna come around[A] here any more.
A/E Part

[A]     [E]                                
[A]Sailin' down the river in an [E]old canoe,
[A]A bunch of bugs and an [E]old tennis shoe.
[A]Out of the river all [E]ugly and green,
[A]Came the biggest old alligator [E]that I've ever seen!
[A]Teeth big and pointy and his [E]eyes were buggin' out,
[A]Contracted the union, put the [E]beggars to rout.
[A]Screamin' and yellin', he was [E]pickin' his chops,
[A]He never runs he just [E]stumbles and hops.
[A]Just out of prison on [E]ten dollars bail,
[A]Mumblin' bitches and [E]waggin' his tail.
