His Dad-dy would use him

A-bout for-ty-five min-utes

South-east of Thi-bo-daux, Loui-si-an-a
 -4 -4 -4    -4   -4   4*  -4
Live a man called Doc Mill-sap 
-3  -3    2   2  -1   1* -3
and his pret-ty wife Han-nah.

Well, they raised up a son that could 
 4  4   4   -5    -5  6    -3
eat up his weight in gro-c’ries.

(spoken)
Named him af-ter a man of the cloth,

Called him A-mos Mos-es.



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

Well, the Sheriff got wind that Amos
Was in the swamp tracking alligator skin.
So he snuck in the swamp, gonna get the boy.
But he never come out again.
Well, I wonder where the Louisiana Sheriff went to?
You can sure get lost in the Louisiana Bayou!

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana
Lived a cat called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna.
Well, they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries.
Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses.

Set out on 'em Amos.
Make it count, Son!

About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana...
