Demo Tips & Pdf

Elvis recorded this track with well known LA nightclub jazz artist Kitty White for his 1958 movie King Creole. A pretty simple arrangement with just 2 chords. Th Clash frontman Joe Strummer said this was his favourite Elvis song. So much so that he included it in a 2007 documentary entitled, Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten.

Of all the songs Elvis recorded and released as hit, this song was not one of them.

Johnny Thunders and Patti Palladin covered the song back in 1985 as part of their CopyCats album.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No
  • Rhythm = a root down root up down up will work for this one
  • Picking = No
  • Chords = Gm, Dm (D)

Crawfish Lyrics

Crawfish - Crawfish

Well, I went to the bayou just last night
There was no moon but the stars were bright
Put a big long hook on a big long pole
And I pulled Mr. Crawfish out of his hole
Crawfish - Crawfish
See I got him; see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes

Sweet meat, look - fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish - Crawfish
Now take Mr. Crawfish in your hand
He's gonna look good in your frying pan
If you fry him crisp or you boil him right
He'll be sweeter than sugar when you take a bite
Crawfish - Crawfish
See I got him; see the size
Stripped and cleaned before your eyes

Sweet meat, look - fresh and ready to cook
Crawfish - Crawfish
