Watermelon Crawl  Tracy Byrd



I was driving through Georgia in late July
on a day hot enough to make the [D]Devil [G7]sigh
I saw a homemade sign [C]written in red
[G7]"Run! County Watermelon [D]Festival [G7]ahead"
Verse2: Well I wasn't in a hurry so I slowed down
took a two lane road to a one horse town
there was a party goin on when I got there
I heard a welcome speech from a small town mayor
Chorus: C
He said we got 100 gallons of sweet red wine
[G]made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
help your[C]self to some but obey the law
G (stop) D (stop) (riff)
if you drink don't drive do the Watermelon Crawl
Verse3: When the band started playin a watermelon queen
Said let me show you something that you ain't never seen
she grabbed me by the arm said c'mon let's go
she dipped down spun around and do-si-do'd
Verse4: she rocked back on her heels dropped down to her knees
crawled across the floor then she jumped back to her feet
she wiggled and she jiggled - beat all you ever saw
said "This is how you down the Watermelon Crawl"
(SOLO - over chorus)
Verse5: If you're ever down in Georgia round about July
if you ain't in a hurry then you oughta stop by
I can guarantee you're gonna have a ball
learnin' how to do the Watermelon Crawl
