Jerry Reed Amos Moses lyrics

Yeah, here comes Amos

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun

He lived by himself in the swamp

He hunted alligator for a living

He'd just knock them in the head with a stump

The Louisiana law gonna get you, Amos

It ain't legal hunting alligator down in the swamp, boy

Now everyone blamed his old man

For making him mean as a snake

When Amos Moses was a boy

His daddy would use him for alligator bait

Tie a rope around his neck and throw him in the swamp

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

Now the folks around south Louisiana

Said Amos was a hell of a man

He could trap the biggest, the meanest alligator

And he'd just use one hand

That's all he got left 'cause an alligator bit it

Left arm gone clear up to the elbow

Well the sheriff caught wind that Amos was in the swamp trapping 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 man called Doc Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah
