Watermelon Crawl - Tracy Byrd

Verse1:	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"

Verse2: 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

Chorus:	           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

Verse3: 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

Verse4: 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]

Verse5: 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

	[CHORUS]
