Sam Hall

Sam Hall

 Now my name is Sam Hall, Chimney Sweep, Chimney Sweep
 Oh my name is Sam Hall, Chimney Sweep
 Oh my name is Sam Hall,
 And I hate you one and all
 You're a bunch of mucker's(bastards) all
 Blast your eyes. Damn your souls
 You're a bunch of mucker's all, Blast your eyes.

 I have twenty Pounds In store Thats not all , Thats not all ,
 I have twenty Pounds In store, Thats not all
 I have twenty Pounds In store,
 And I'll rob for tweny more
 Oh the rich must help the poor so must I, so must I
 Oh the rich must help the poor so must I

 Now I killed a man they said, so they said, so they said
 Oh I killed a man they said, so they said
 Oh I killed a man they said bashed in his bloody head
 And I left him layin dead
 Blast his eyes damn his Soul
 And I left him layin dead, Blast his eyes

 Ah They took me to Cooth Hill In a cart, in a cart
 Ah They took me to Cooth Hill In a cart
 Ah They took me to Cooth Hill and I stopped to make me will
 Oh The best of friends must part so must I, so must I
 Oh The best of friends must part so must I

 Up the ladder I did Grope that's no joke , thats no joke,
 Up the ladder I did Grope that's no joke
 Up the ladder I did Grope and the hangman pulled the rope
 And ne're a word I spoke, tumblin' down, tumblin' down
 And ne're a word I spoke, tumblin' down
