A7
YEAH HERE COMES AMOS 

NOW AMOS MOSES WAS A CAJUN 
   B7                      D7
HE LIVED BY HIMSELF IN THE SWAMP 

HE HUNTED ALLIGATOR FOR A LIVING 

HE'D JUST KNOCK THEM IN THE HEAD WITH A STUMP 
    A7
THE LOUISIANA LAW GONNA GET YOU AMOS 

IT AIN'T LEGAL HUNTING ALLIGATOR DOWN IN THE SWAMP BOY 


    A7
NOW EVERYONE BLAMED HIS OLD MAN 
    B7                   D7
FOR MAKING HIM MEAN AS A SNAKE 

WHEN AMOS MOSES WAS A BOY 

HIS DADDY WOULD USE HIM FOR ALLIGATOR BAIT 
      A7
TIE A ROPE AROUND HIS NECK AND THROW HIM IN THE SWAMP 

ALLIGATOR MAN IN THE LOUISIANA BAYOU 


      B7
ABOUT FORTY-FIVE MINUTES SOUTH OF TIPPITOE LOUISIANA 
                                                        A
LIVED A MAN CALLED DR. MILLS SOUTH AND HIS PRETTY WIFE HANNAH 
     E7                        C                 A7 
THEY RAISED UP A SON WHO COULD EAT HIS WEIGHT IN GROCERIES 

(Named him after a man of the cloth called him amos moses) spoken 


NOW THE FOLKS AROUND SOUTH LOUISIANA 
SAID AMOS WAS A HELL OF A MAN 
HE COULD TRAP THE BIGGEST MEANEST ALLIGATOR 
AND HE'D JUST USE ONE HAND 
THAT'S ALL HE GOT LEFT CAUSE AN ALLIGATOR BIT IT 
LEFT ARM GONE CLEAR UP TO THE ELBOW 


WELL THE SHERIFF CAUGHT WIND THAT AMOS WAS UP IN THE SWAMP 
TRADING ALLIGATOR SKINS 
SO HE SNUCK IN THE SWAMP GONNA GET THE BOY 
BUT HE NEVER CAME OUT 
WELL I WONDER WHERE THE LOUISIANA SHERIFF WENT TO 
WELL YOU CAN SURE GET LOST IN THE LOUISIANA BAYOU 


      B7
ABOUT FORTY-FIVE MINUTES SOUTH OF TIPPITOE LOUISIANA 
                                                        A
LIVED A MAN CALLED DR. MILLS SOUTH AND HIS PRETTY WIFE HANNAH 
     E7                        C                 A7 
THEY RAISED UP A SON WHO COULD EAT HIS WEIGHT IN GROCERIES 

(Named him after a man of the cloth called him amos moses) spoken


I KNOW SON 
MAKE IT COUNT SON 
ABOUT FORTY-FIVE MINUTES SOUTH OF TIPPITOE LOUISIANA
