CROCODILE ROCK
                   Elton John/Bernie Taupin
                   1972   Dick James Music Ltd.

Pre-Intro-  begin slowly - G [4 beats] C/E [2 beats] F# [2 beats] 
                    - now go to tempo

[Intro] - G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D   [see below for riff]

[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.......................................


G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D    [see below for riff]

[verse 2]

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

[chorus]

[verse 1]

[chorus]

[outro]  G   G   Em   Em   C   C   D   D    [see below for riff]

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
