Lyrics

Yeah, here comes Amos Now Amos Moses was a Cajun He lived by hisself in the swamp He hunted alligator for a livin' He'd just knock 'em in the head with a stump The Louisiana law gonna get ya, Amos It ain't legal huntin' alligator Down in the swamp boy Now everybody blames 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, ha-ha A alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodaux, Louisiana Lived a man called Doc Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah Well they raised up a son that could eat up his weight in groceries Named him after a man of the cloth called him Amos Moses, yeah, ha-ha 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 a alligator bit it, ha-ha-ha Left arm gone clean up to the elbow Well the sheriff caught wind that Amos Was up in the swamp, trappin' 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, Louisiana Lived a cat called Doc Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah Well they raised up a son that could eat up his weight in groceries Named him after a man of the cloth called him Amos Moses Sit down on 'em, Amos Make it count son About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodaux, Louisiana Lived a cat called Doc Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah
