LYRICS:

Sun’s going down in the southern sky 
Black water in the woods is coming alive 
Moon is coming up through the cypress trees 
Smell of the swamp is on the breeze 

At the water’s edge there’s a pair of eyes 
Still as night an alligator lies 
Jaws snap shut another soul is gone 
To the bottom of the swamp in an alligator roll 

He lives in the swamp they call him alligator man 
He’s a trapper and a hunter living off the land 
Makes his money selling alligator hides 
Living in the swamp where the strong survive 

At the water’s edge there’s a pair of eyes 
Still as night an alligator lies 
Jaws snap shut another soul is gone 
To the bottom of the swamp in an alligator roll 

Bridge: 

Down down down 
Into the muddy water never to be found 
In swamp water black as coal 
The last thing you’ll ever know is an alligator roll 

Chicken on a hook hot summer night 
Catch a mean alligator putting up a fight 
Stick your hand in the water you ain’t going home 
Black water sounds with your breaking bones 

At the water’s edge there’s a pair of eyes 
Still as night an alligator lies 
Jaws snap shut another soul is gone 
To the bottom of the swamp in an alligator roll
