SAM HALL

Oh my name is Sam Hall, Sam Hall
Oh my name is Sam Hall
And I hate you one and all
You’re a gang of muckers all
Damn your eyes.

Oh, I killed a man they said, so they said
Yes, I killed a man they said
For I cracked him on the head
And left him there for dead
Damn his eyes.

So they put me in the quad, in the quad
Yes, they put me in the quad
With a chain and iron rod
And they left me there, by God
Damn their eyes.

And the parson he did come, he did come
And the parson he did come
And he looked so ******* glum
With his talk of Kingdom Come
Damn his eyes.

And the sheriff he came too, he came too
And the sheriff he came too
With his boys all dressed in blue
They’re a gang o’ muckers too
Damn their eyes.

So it’s up the rope ye go, up ye go
So it’s up the rope ye go
With your friends all down below
Saying “Sam, I told you so”
Damn their eyes.

Saw my Nellie in the crowd, in the crowd,...
She was looking stooped and bowed,
So I hollered, right out loud,
"Hey, Nellie, ain't you proud?
God damn your eyes."

So this’ll be my knell, be my knell
So this’ll be my knell
Hope to .......you go to hell
Hope to........you sizzle well
Damn your eyes.

And now I goes upstairs, goes upstairs
And now I goes upstairs
Here’s an end to all my cares
So tip up all your prayers
Damn your eyes.
