Crocodile Rock chords
Elton John *

G  Em  C  D  

    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

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  Em  C  D  

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

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
