Tracy Byrd – “Watermelon Crawl”

G7 I was driving through Georgia in late July
D G7 on a day hot enough to make the Devil sigh
C I saw a homemade sign written in red
G7 D G7 “Run! County Watermelon Festival ahead”

Well I wasn’t in a hurry so I slowed down took a two lane road to a one horse town
there was a party goin on when I got there
I heard a welcome speech from a small town mayor

C He said we got 100 gallons of sweet red wine
G made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
C help yourself to some but obey the law
G (stop) D (stop) (riff)
if you drink don’t drive do the Watermelon Crawl

When the band started playin a watermelon queen
Said let me show you something that you ain’t never seen she grabbed me by the arm said c’mon let’s go
she dipped down spun around and do-si-do’d

she rocked back on her heels dropped down to her knees crawled across the floor then she jumped back to her feet she wiggled and she jiggled – beat all you ever saw said “This is how you down the Watermelon Crawl”

[CHORUS] [SOLO - over chorus]

If you’re ever down in Georgia round about July
if you ain’t in a hurry then you oughta stop by
I can guarantee you’re gonna have a ball
learnin’ how to do the Watermelon Crawl
