  • Alligator skins, crocodile hides, good ol' boys, and their Southern brides
    City folk come for the lure of the bounty
    But they don't come back 'cause the sheriff of the country is
    Buford T. Jefferson Davis III
    And I'm only here to warn you if you haven't heard about:
    Gator hides- a sheriff's pride
    Everyglades mirrored shades
    He's a good ol' boy but he ain't no good
    He'll bust your head on a stump
    Just like splittin' wood
    Got a story of his own though he ain't askin' for pity
    Saw his folks shot dead for twelve dollars in the city
    So Buford was orphaned by the city at ten
    Got a chip on his shoulder the size of Gentle Ben
    [Chorus]
    Hunted 10,000 islands, drank 10,000 beers
    Wanted 10,000 dollars, got 10,000 years
    So I drank myself blind, on a homemade solution
    As my body rots away in a penal institution
    So if you come for the gators let me give you a clue
    The shefiff of the county's got it in for you
