[Intro]

G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D   


[Verse 1]

     G                                    Bm
I remember when rock was young,    me and Susie had so much fun
        C                                D
Holding hands and skimmin' stones  had a old gold Chevy & a place of my own
        G                                      Bm
But the biggest kick I ever got    was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock
          C                                                D
While the other kids were rockin' 'round the clock we were hoppin' and 
boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well


[Chorus]

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


[Interlude]

G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D     


[Verse 2]

        G                                 Bm
But the years went by and rock just died, Susie went and left me for some foreign guy,
C                                        D
Long nights cryin' by the record machine dreamin' of my Chevy & my old blue jeans but they'll
G                                        Bm
Never kill the thrills we've got burnin' up to the Crocodile Rock,
         C                                        D
Learning fast till the weeks went past, we really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well


[Chorus]

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

        G                                      Bm
But the biggest kick I ever got    was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock
          C                                                D
While the other kids were rockin' 'round the clock we were hoppin' and 

boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well


[Chorus]

Em                                                A7
Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin' when your feet just can't keep still
D7                                 G

D7                               C

[Outro]

G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D    



RIFF -  if you know how it goes, the extra notes you throw in at the
        appropriate spots are-
        E  on the G chord
        F# on the Em and C chords
        G  on the D chord [dropping the F#]

BASS -  Walk up from the root to the sixth on each 1/4 note, so in each
        bar the notes are-
        G   G  B  D  E
        Em  E  G  B  D
        C   C  E  G  A
        D   D  F# A  B
