Hank Williams Jr. – Amos Moses lyrics
Spoken: Here come Amos

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by himself in the swamp
He hunted alligator for a living
He just knock them in the head with a stump

Louisiana law gonna get ya Amos
It ain't legal huntin alligator
Down in the swamp now
Well 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

Time for? And chokin in the swamp
Alligator babe in a Louisiana bayou
About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodaux Louisiana
Lived a man named Doc Mill Sap
And his pretty white Hannah
They raised up a son who could
Eat his weight in groceries
They named him after a man of cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Now the folks around South Louisiana
Thought 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 the alligator bit it
Left on gone, clean up to the elbow

Well the sheriff got wind that Amos
Was in the swamp hutnin alligator skin
So he snuck in the swamp
Tried to get the boy
And he never came out again

Well I wonder where the
Louisiana sheriff went too?
You can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodaux Louisiana
Lived a man named Doc Mill Sap
And his pretty white Hannah
They raised up a son who could
Eat his weight in groceries
They named him after a man of cloth
Called him Amos Moses

Sit down on em Amos

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

His name is Amos Moses
Amos Amos Amos Moses
