Amos moses

by Conway Twitty. Buy album CD: How Much More Can She Stand

Now Amos Moses was a Cajun
He lived by himself in the swamp
He haunted alligators for a livin'
He just knock 'em in the head with a stump.

The Louisiana law's gonna get ya Amos
It ain't legal huntin' alligators down in the swamp boy
Now everybody blames his old man
For makin' him mean as a snake.

When Amos Moses was a boy
His daddy would use him for alligator bait
Tie a rope around his waist throw him in the swamp
Alligator bait in the Louisiana bayou.

About forty five minutes southeast of Tippidoe Louisiana
Live a man called Doc Millsap and his pretty wife Hannah
Well, they raised up a son
That could eat up his weight in groc'ries
Named him after the man of the cloth
Called him Amos Moses.

--- Instrumental ---

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

Well, the sheriff got wind
That Amos was in the swamp trappin' alligator skins
So he snook in the swamp
Gonna get the boy but he never come out again.

Well, I wonder where the Louisiana sheriff went to
Well, you can sure get lost in the Louisiana bayou
About forty five minutes.

About forty five minutes...

  1. (i can't believe) she gives it all to me
  2. Amos moses
  3. Cold, cold heart
  4. Every day family man
  5. Help me make it through the night
  6. How much more can she stand
  7. Just like a stranger
  8. Last one to touch me
  9. Let me be the judge
  10. Memory of your sweet love
  11. Take these chains from my heart
  12. They'll never take her love from me
  13. Wedding bells
  14. You win again
  15. Your cheatin' heart
