Amos Moses
By Hank Williams Jr

Spoken Here come Amos. 

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
   A                       C
He lived by himself in the swamp
He hunted alligators for a livin’
        C                            G 
He just knock ‘em in the head with a stomp
Louisiana law gonna getcha Amos
         G                       D                 G
It ain’t legal huntin’ alligator down in the swamp now

Well everyone blamed his ol’ 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 neck and choke him in the swamp
Yeah, alligator bait in the Louisiana Bayou.

      D               C                     G  
About 45 minutes southeast of Thibodaux Louisiana
       D                C                   G
Live a man named Doc Milsap and pretty wife Hanna
     D                                           C  
They raised up a son who could eat his weight in grocerieeees
Spoken: Named him after a man of the cloth, called him Amos Moses

Now the folks around south Louisiana 
Said Amos was a helluva man
He could trap the biggest, meanest alligator 
And just use one hand
That’s all he got left ‘cause the alligator bit it hahaha
Left arm gone clean up the elbow

Well the sheriff got wind that Amos 
Was in the swamp trappin’ alligator skin
So he snuck in the swamp. Gonna get the boy,
But he never come out again
Well, wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to
Now you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou


Spoken: Sit down on ‘em Amos


Spoken: His name is Amos Moses
Amos Amos Amos Moses
Spoken: His name is Amos Moses

Dude.....where all the chords?
-P.A.LinZ | 7/6/2005
The chord progression is the same throughout
the song - it is implied that the chords
remain the same from the first
verse ...except for the bridge which then
