Amos Moses Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun he lived by himself in the swamp
He haunted alligators for a livin' he just knock 'em in the head with a stump
The Louisiana law's gonna get ya Amos
It ain't legal huntin' alligators 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 throw him in the swamp
Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou

About forty five minutes southeast of Tippidoe Louisiana
Live a man called Doc Millsap and his pretty wife Hannah
Well they raised up a son that could eat up his weight in groc'ries
Named him after the man of the cloth called him Amos Moses

Now folks around south Louisiana said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest the meanest alligator and just use only one hand
That's all he got left cause the alligator bit him
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow
Well the sheriff got wind that Amos was in the swamp trappin' alligator skins
So he snook 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...
About forty five minutes...
