C           F          Am          C


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


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

C      Dm     F     C   C7

F                     C
(Hung up, waitin' for windy day)
F                     C
(Hung up, waitin' for windy day)

F                       C
Creepy alligator coming all around the bend,
F                                    C
Shoutin' about the times when we was mutual friends,
F                        C
I checked my memory and I checked it quick, yes I will.
F                             C
I checked it runnin' some old kind of trick.

[Chorus 2]

Dm              A
Oh no! Well I've been there before,
G7                           A
And I ain't gonna come around here any more.

A    E

[Verse 2]

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


E     D    Em   E
