    (Jerry Reed Hubbard)

    Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
    He lived by himself in the swamp
    He haunted alligators for a livin'
    He just knock 'em in the head with a stump.

    The Louisiana law's gonna get ya Amos
    It ain't legal huntin' alligators down in the swamp boy
    Now everybody blames 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 around his waist throw him in the swamp
    Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou.

    About forty five minutes southeast of Thibadeaux, Louisiana
    Live a man called Doc Millsap and his pretty wife Hannah
    Well, they raised up a son
    That could eat up his weight in groc'ries
    Named him after the man of the cloth
    Called him Amos Moses.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Now folks around south Louisiana
    Said Amos was a hell of a man
    He could trap the biggest the meanest alligator
    And just use only one hand.
    That's all he got left 'cause the alligator bit him
    Left arm gone clean up to the elbow.

    Well, the sheriff got wind
    That Amos was in the swamp trappin' alligator skins
    So he snook in the swamp
    Gonna get the boy but he never come out again.

    Well, I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to
    Well, you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
    About forty five minutes.

    About forty five minutes...
