Samuel Small (Sam Hall)

Samuel Small (Sam Hall)

Oh my name is Samuel Small, Samuel Small
Oh my Name is Samuel Small
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 I 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
Saw my Nellie in the crowd
And I hollered right out loud,
"Needn't look so --- proud
Damn yer 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
