    Amos Moses
    Jerry Reed

    Yeah here comes Amos
    Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
    He lived by himself in the swamp
    He hunted alligator for a living
    He'd just knock them in the head with a stump
    The Louisiana law gonna get you Amos
    It ain't legal hunting alligator down in the swamp boy

    Now everyone blamed his old man
    For making 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 throw him in the swamp
    Alligator man in the Louisiana bayou
    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana
    Lived a man called Dr. Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah
    They raised up a son who could eat his weight in groceries
    Named him after a man of the cloth
    Called him Amos Moses

    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
    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana
    Lived a cat named Dr. Mills South and his pretty wife Hannah
    They raised up a son who could eat his weight in groceries
    Named him after a man of the cloth
    Called him Amos Moses

    I know son
    Make it count son
    About forty-five minutes south of Tippitoe Louisiana...

    Dude...Jerry Reed's been around for years! Amos hit #8 in 1971 (I was 10 /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif)
    He also did a well known song called "When your Hot your Hot" and "East Bound and Down" from Smokey and the bandit.

    He played the part "Gator" (the truck driver) on Smokey & the Bandit

    oh yea i knew about smokey and the bandit, and when i was looking for the Amos Moses song i came across "The ballad of Gator Mcklusky" that song is badass too,

    Jerry Reed was also in "water boy" with Adam Sandler and Fonzi. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
