Tracy Byrd - Watermelon Crawl Lyrics

I was drivin' through Georgia in late July
On a day hot enough to make the devil sigh
I saw a homemade sign written in red
Rhine county watermelon festival ahead

Well, I wasn't in a hurry so I slowed down
Took a two lane road to a one horse town
There was a party goin' on when I got there
I heard a welcome speech from a small town mayor

He said we got a hundred gallons of sweet red wine
Made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
Help yourself to some, but obey the law
If you drink, don't drive, do the watermelon crawl

When the band started playin' the watermelon queen
Said let me show you somethin' that you ain't ever seen
She grabbed me by the arm, said come on lets go
She dipped down, spun around, and do-ce-doed

She rocked back on her heels dropped down to her knees
Crawled across the floor and she jumped back on her feet
She wiggled and she giggled and be all you ever saw
Said this is how you do the watermelon crawl

She said we got a hundred gallons of sweet red wine
Made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
Help yourself to some, but obey the law
If you drink, don't drive, do the watermelon crawl

If you're ever down in Georgia around about July
If you ain't in a hurry then you oughta stop by
I can guarantee that you're goin' have a ball
Learnin' how to do the watermelon crawl

Well, we got a hundred gallons of sweet red wine
Made from the biggest watermelons on the vine
Help yourself to some, but obey the law
If you drink, don't drive, do the watermelon crawl

Yeah do the watermelon crawl
Have fun you all
And do the watermelon crawl

  50. Blovenation Brandon Lovell

    Happy Labor Day weekend America

  51. Joseph Bard

    Good song

  52. Cory Nielsen

    This to me sounds like a new dance craze.


    Already was. There was a line dance for it. You can actually see bits and pieces to it in the video.

    Jonathan Lockhart

    @Shredpostings A long time ago.


    @Jonathan Lockhart you don't say? Lol

    Mike Lochridge

    Actually, line dances came out right after the song came out 25 years ago. And there were at least 3 different line dances created for it. The dance done in the video wasn't the most popular one. Whoever was able to publish a dance fastest was the one that everyone would do.

    _ GreyBones

    Such a fun line dance in the early 90's! (American Cowboy Co -. country bar in Tampa, FL)

  53. Dennis Miller

    This video is the worst quality ever seen. If there is none better this one should be burned.


    Friend ... You were very good at explaining. Better than me. HAHA HA. Thank you

    Michael O'Dell

    @ADIR P. LIMA you're welcome.


    Friend. I am Brazilian. I like Tracy Byrd. Thank you for your tuning. Friendly hug

    Michael O'Dell

    @ADIR P. LIMA you're very welcome. Hope you can post more Tracy Bryd videos on YouTube. I'm a fan of Tracy Bryd and been to several of his concerts. I saw him in 2015 at Dosey Doe and was able to shake his hand and talk to him. I even got to see the inside of his tour bus and met his band members.He even gave me his cowboy hat ( which I lost a few years ago in a bad wind storm). I still have have an autographed picture of him. I will definitely watch and like more Tracy Bryd videos from you if you have any more to post. Thank you very much.


    @Michael O'Dell
    wow michael
    Very cool
    I'm from Brazil and I'd love to have this opportunity.
    Congratulations my friend
