(15) Gator Blood (4:15)

Gator Blood (Mark Knopfler)

LYRICS
Hammer on a skillet up they come
Showman whanging on a ballyhoo drum
Watch out, people I’m a greedy man
Swallowed all the fishes in the frying pan
Blood, gator blood, I got gator blood
Chicken on a hotplate gobbledegook
Come on up, honey and take a look
Mighty fine weather this time of year
Shake a tail feather you chicken you hear
Blood, gator blood, I got gator blood
Chicken on a hotplate it’s gonna dance
Gonna lose these chickens my first chance
Don’t you know I’m a flim flam man
A chicken show it ain’t worth a damn
Gator blood, I got gator blood
I got a country boy, he’s a bird who sings
Butter paddle, buck ‘n wing
Kid’s got a winner bonafide hit
I’m gonna have my dinner on a spit
Blood, gator blood, I got gator blood
Hoopla, humbug, howdy-do
Gonna make you into chicken stew
Alligator in the mud
Don’t you know I got gator blood
Gator blood, I got gator blood
Never lend a dollar to your good friend Tom
Hogwash Holler is where he’s from
If you got treasure all in a vault
And he gets you, baby that’s your own fault
Gator blood, I got gator blood

ALLIGATOR BLOOD[/size] wins

The gelding’s name is derived from a poker term:-
alligator blood
Term used in poker.
Used to describe a player who plays fearlessly when short-stacked and wins, or optionally, a player who plays for a long time short-stacked, winning just enough to keep them in the game. Also can be used to mean the complete lack of concern for other people's well being at the poker table.
The kid's got alligator blood.

This song is about the music manager of Elvis,
Mark has said on several of the 2013 shows..

And as with many of his songs, this one is better live and the studio version I think   ;D

I agree GB is 100% better live!

The one played in St Julien or Carcasonne, I can't remember which, has to be one of the best version.

The one from Carcassonne is wonderful and I was lucky enough to be right in front of MK that evening!
