CROCODILE ROCK        

ELTON JOHN

 

G   Bm   C    D

 

      G  

I remember when rock was young,

        Bm

Me and Suzy had so much fun

        C

Holdin' hands and skimmin' stones

        D

Had an old gold chevy and a place of my own

 

But the biggest kick I ever got

Was doin' a thing called Crocodile Rock

While the other kids were rockin' round the clock

We were  hoppin' and boppin to the Crocodile Rock, well

 

Chorus

 

Em

Crocodile Rockin' is somethin' shockin'

           A7

When your feet just can't keep still

D7

Never knew me a better time

       G

And I guess I never will

E

Oh! Lordy mama, those Friday nights

     A7

When Suzy wore her dresses tight

 D7                            C

Crocodile Rockin' was ou-out of sight

 

G              Em             C              D

La, la-la-la-la la, la-la-la-la la, la-la-la-la la,

 

 

But the years went by and rock just died

Suzy went and left me for some foreign guy

Long nights cryin' by the record machine

Dreamin' of my chevy and my old blue jeans

But they'll never kill the thrills we got

Burnin' up to the Crocodile Rock

Learnin' fast as the weeks went past

We really thought the Crocodile rock would last, well
