Amos Moses Lyrics

Artist: Hank Williams, Jr.
Album: I'm One of You

Artist/Band: Williams Hank Jr
Lyrics for Song: Amos Moses
Lyrics for Album: I'm One of You
Spoken: Here come Amos

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by hisself in the swamp
He hunted alligator for a livin'
He just knock them in the head with a stomp

Louisiana law gonna getcha Amos
It ain't legal huntin' alligator
Down in the swamp now
Well everyone blamed 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 â'round his neck and chuck â'im in the swamp
Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou
About 45 minutes southeast of Tibado Louisiana
Lived a man named Doc Milsap
And his pretty white Hannah
They raised up a son who could
Eat his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Now the folks around South Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest meanest alligator
And just use one hand
That's all he got left
Cause an alligator bit it
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

Whoa! I wonder where the
Louisiana sheriff went to?
Now you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
About 45 minutes southeast of Tibado Louisiana
Lived a cat named Doc Milsap
And his pretty white Hannah
They raised up a son who could
Eat his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Sit down on â'em Amos

About 45 minutes southeast of Tibado Louisiana
Lived a cat named Doc Milsap
And his pretty white Hannah
They raised up a son who could
Eat his weight in groceries
Named him after a man of cloth
Called him Amos Moses

His name is Amos Moses
Amos Amos Amos Moses
