"Gator" lyrics

Gator

He was raised in the swamp
In back of a slough
He grew up eating rattlesnake meat
Drinking homemade brew

Now folks here about call him Gator
And everybody knows him well
Meanest man ever to hit the swamp
Folks swear he come straight outta hell

Well, Gator McKlusky's
Sitting on a stump
Hammer pulled back
On a twelve gauge pump
Watching that swamp
Looking out for the law
While he make the best corn liquor
You ever saw
Rot gut whiskey

While he's making that mash
He watches and he looks
Old Gator he knows
That swamp like a book
"Something out there moving
Gator, what do you see?"
"Ain't nothing but the snakes
And the gators and me"

Everything's okey dokey
In the Okefenokee
That sheriff ain't snooping around
So cook that moonshine down
Till it's good and clear

Everything's okey dokey
In the Okefenokee
That sheriff he'd soon
Mess around with the devil
Than to get his self alone
Messing around in here

One day he was cooking some mash
He was almost done
When they spotted the law
And they had to run
So he headed for the swamp
And they followed him in
But the law might as well
Been a chasing the wind
Look out for that snake, sheriff

Well, they chased him on back
Through the muck and the slime
To the back of that swamp
Where the sun don't shine
But the law won't never
Catch Gator, my friend
Cause he knows that swamp
Like the back of his hand

Watch out boys old Smokey's
In the Okefenokee
The sheriff's out there snooping around
So shut that business down
And let's disappear

Look out, boys, old Smokey's
In the Okefenokee
But that sheriff
He's really gonna catch the devil
If he keeps on snooping around in here

Gator's in the swamp, sheriff
Go get him if you can
Careful, sheriff
Don't let that Gator bite you on your gonads
