Amos Moses lyrics

Jerry Reed

[Verse 1]
Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by himself in a swamp
Hunting alligators for a livin'
Hit them on the head with a stump
Louisiana laws are goin’ to get you Amos
It ain't legal huntin' alligators down in the swamp, boy

[Verse 2]
Now some people blamed his old man
For treatin’ him mean as a snake
When Amos Moses was a boy
His daddy would use him for alligator bait
Tie a loop around his waist
And throw him in the swamp
Alligator bait on the Louisiana Bayou

[Chorus]
Just about forty-five minutes off the Eastern tip of ol' Louisiana
There lived a man named Darkness Seth an' his pretty wife Anna
They raised up a child who could eat up his weight in groceries
Thеy named him after a man of the cross; thеy called him Amos Moses

[Verse 3]
The folk 'round South Louisiana
They said that Amos was a terrible man
He could trap the biggest, meanest alligators
He only had to use one hand
The other one's gone 'cos an alligator took it
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow

[Chorus]
Just about forty-five minutes off the Eastern tip of ol' Louisiana
There lived a man named Darkness Seth an' his pretty wife Anna
They raised up a child who could eat up his weight in groceries
They named him after a man of the cross; they called him Amos Moses

Here comes Amos now

[Verse 4]
Now there came around a Louisiana Sheriff
Says "I’m gonna bag me that man
He’s the biggest, meanest, alligator hunter
An' I’m gonna bag him if I can."
The Louisiana Sheriff came into the Bayou
But he never came home again

[Chorus]
Just about forty-five minutes off the Eastern tip of ol' Louisiana
There lived a man named Darkness Seth an' his pretty wife Anna
They raised up a child who could eat up his weight in groceries
They named him after a man of the cross; they called him Amos Moses

[Outro]
They named him after a man of the cross; they called him Amos Moses
They named him after a man of the cross; they called him Amos Moses

They named him after a man of the cross; they called him Amos Moses
