Align:    
  • Well, Amos Moses was a Cajun
  • He lived by himself in the swamp.
  • He hunted alligator for a livin'
  • 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!
  • Well, everybody blamed his old man
  • For makin' him mean as a snake.
  • When Amos Moses was a boy,
  • His Daddy would use his for alligator bait.
  • Tie a rope around his waist and throw him in the swamp!
  • About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, 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 all 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 cuz the 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?
  • You can sure get lost in the Louisiana Bayou!
  • About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, 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, Son!
  • About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana...
