The strumming pattern is kinda hard to get, but listen to the song and play around 
and you'll have it in no time.

Yeah! Here comes Amos! (that's during the final bit of the intro)

     A
Now Amos moses was a cajon
      B
 He lived by himself in the swamp.
   D7
He hunted alligator for a livin'
  D7
Just knock 'em in the head with a stump.

The Lousisana law gonna get you, Amos!(during the riff)
It ain't legal huntin' alligator down in the swamp, boy!

   A
Well, everybody blamed his old man
    B                 D7
For makin' him mean as a snake.
   D7
When Amos Moses was a boy,
                                      D7 
His Daddy would use his for alligator bait.

Tie a rope around his waist and throw him in the swamp!
Aliigator bait in the   Lousisana bayou

       E7                 D7                        A7
About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana
      E7                  D7                       A7
Lived a man called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Anna.
            E7                       C                 D7
Well, they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries.

(Haven't quite gotten this riff yet, but will post as soon as I get it)

Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses.

   A
Now all the folks around south Louisiana
      B
Said Amos was a hell of a man.
        D7
He could trap the biggest,
   D7
The meanest alligator,
        D7
And just use one hand.

That's all he got left cuz the alligator bit it!
Left arm gone clean up to the elbow!

           A
Well, the Sheriff got wind that Amos
             B
Was in the swamp tracking alligator skin.
        D7
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!

           E7                             D7          A7
About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana
           E7                             D7       A7
Lived a cat called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Anna.
   E7                      C                   D7
Well, they raised up a son who could eat up his weight in groceries.

(once again there's the part I don't know yet. Just using the original 
doesn't sound too bad though, and it does fade back
 into it so you should be good)

Named him after a man of the cloth,
Called him Amos Moses.
Set out on 'em Amos.
Make it count, Son!

          E7                              D7         A7
About forty-five minutes southeast of Thibodeaux, Lousisiana...
          E7                             D7       A7
Lived a cat called Doc Milsap and his pretty wife Anna.
