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
