This song is pretty easy to play once you get the main riff down.

You also need to use a lot of alternate picking and 
up and down strumming to get the right sound.

   A                         Bm                         D
Now Amos Moses was a Cajun  He lived by his self in the swamp
 

 He hunted alligator for livin' 
                                         G*
He just knocked em' in the head with a stump
						  
Louisiana law gonna get you Amos  (Play Riff)

It ain't legal huntin' alligators down in the swamp boy  (Play Riff)

A                                  Bm                          D
Now everybody blamed his old man   For makin' him mean as a snake
 
G*
When Amos Moses was a boy his daddy'd use him for alligator bait

Tie a rope around his neck and throw him in the swamp (Play Riff) 

Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou  (Play Riff)

Everybody in south Louisiana   Said Amos was a helluva man

He could trap the biggest and meanest alligator   and just use one hand

That's all he got left cause a alligator bit it  (Play Riff)

Left arm gone clean up to the elbow  (Play Riff)

           A                          Bm                    D
Well the sheriff caught wind of Amos  In the swamp trappin alligator skins
                                                                   G*
That sheriff went lookin for Amos boy you know he never come out again
 
I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to    (Play Riff)

You can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou   (Play Riff)
