Conway Twitty - Amos Moses

rate me

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 Tippidoe 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

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...
