Cross Canadian Ragweed

Cross Canadian Ragweed - Amos Moses

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun

He lived by his self in the swamp

He hunted alligator for livin'

He just knocked em' in the head with a stump

Louisiana law gonna get you Amos

It ain't legal huntin' alligators down in the swamp boy

Now everybody blamed his old man For makin' him mean as a snake

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

Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou


About forty-five minutes south of Thibadoux Louisiana

Lived a cat named Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Hanna

Well they raised up a son that could eat up his weight in groceries

Named him after a man of the cloth

Called him Amos Moses

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

Left arm gone clean up to the elbow

Well the sheriff caught wind of Amos

In the swamp trappin alligator skins

That sheriff went lookin for Amos

Boy you know he never come out again

I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to

You can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
