Yeah here comes Amos
He lived by himself in the swamp
He'd just knock them in the head with a stump
It ain't legal hunting alligator down in the swamp boy
Now everyone blamed his old man
When Amos Moses was a boy
Tie a rope around his neck and throw him in the swamp
About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana
They raised up a son who could eat his weight in groceries
Called him Amos Moses
Now the folks around south Louisiana
He could trap the biggest meanest alligator
That's all he got left cause an alligator bit it

Trading alligator skins
But he never came out
Well you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
Lived a cat named Dr. Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah
Named him after a man of the cloth

Make it count son
