Yeah, here comes Amos

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by his self in the swamp
He hunted alligator for livin
He just knock 'em in the head with a stump
The Lousisana law gonna get you Amos!
It ain't legal huntin alligator down in the swamp boy!

Now everybody blamed his old man
For makin him mean as a snake
When Amos Moses was a boy his Daddy would use him for alligator bait
Tie a rope around his waist and throw him in the swamp
Alligator bait in the Lousisana Bayou

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodaux, Lousisiana
Lived a man called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
Well they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of the cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Now the folks around south Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest, the meanest alligator
And just use one hand
That's all he got left 'cause alligator bit it
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow

Well the Sheriff got wind that Amos
Was in the swamp tracking alligator skin
So he snuck in the swamp, gonna get the boy
But he never come out again
Well I wonder where the Louisiana Sheriff went to?
Well you can sure get lost in the Louisiana Bayou!

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodaux, Lousisiana
Lived a cat called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna
Well, they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of the cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Set out on 'em Amos
Make it count, So
