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 hopping 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 knew 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                               F C F C F C
the Crocodile Rockin' was out of sight.

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 dreaming of my Chevy & my old blue jeans but they'll
G                                        Bm
Never kill the thrills we got    burnin' up to the Crocodile Rock,
         C                                        D
Learning fast as the weeks went past, we really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well
 
 
CHORUS
Em                                                A7
