BALLAD OF GATOR MCKLUSKY Jery Reed Jerry Reed He was raised in the swamp In the back of a slough He grew up eatin' rattlesnake meat And drinkin' 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 sittin' on a stump Hammer pulled back on a twelve gauge pump Watchin' that swamp lookin' out for the law While he make the best corn liquor you ever saw (Rock gut whiskey...) While he's makin' that mash he watches and he looks Old Gator he knows that swamp like a book Somethin' out there movin' Gator whaddaya see Ain't nothin' but the snakes and the gators and me Everything's okey-dokey in the Okefenokee That sheriff ain't snoopin' around So cook that moonshine down 'Til 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 long messin' around in here One day he was cookin' 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-chasin' the wind (Look out for that snake, sheriff...) Well they chased 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 snoopin' 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 snoopin' 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...)
