	        Spoken Here come Amos.   
Now Amos Moses was a Cajun  
   A                       C  
He lived by himself in the swamp  
He hunted alligators for a livin'  
        C                            G   
He just knock 'em in the head with a stump 
Louisiana law gonna getcha Amos  
         G                       D                 G  
It ain't legal huntin' alligator down in the swamp boy 
Well everyone blamed his ol' 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 neck and shove him in the swamp  
Yeah, alligator bait in the Louisiana Bayou.  
      D               C                     G    
About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodaux Louisiana  
       D                C                   G  
Lived a man named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna  
     D                                           C    
They raised up a son who could eat up his weight in grocerieeees  
Spoken: Named him after a man of the cloth, called him Amos Moses  
Now the folks around south Louisiana   
Said Amos was a helluva man  
He could trap the biggest, meanest alligator   
And just use one hand  
That's all he got left 'cause the alligator bit it hahaha  
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow  
Well the sheriff got wind that Amos   
Was in the swamp trappin' alligator skin  
So he snuck in the swamp. Gonna get the boy,  
But he never come out again  
Well, wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to  
Now you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou  
Spoken: Sit down on 'em Amos  
Spoken: His name is Amos Moses  
Amos Amos Amos Moses  
Spoken: His name is Amos Moses
