Lyrics for:
Sam Hall

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Now me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, and I've robbed both great and small
And me neck will pay for all, when I die, when I die
And me neck will pay for all, when I die.

I have twenty pounds in store, that's not all, that's not all
I have twenty pounds in store, that's not all
I have twenty pounds in store, and I'll rob for twenty more
For the rich must help the poor, so must I, so must I
For the rich must help the poor, so must I.

Oh, they took me to Coote Hill in a cart, in a cart
Oh, they took me to Coote Hill in a cart
Oh, they took me to Coote Hill, I was asked to write my will
Saying the best of friends must part, so must I, so must I
Saying the best of friends must part, so must I.

Up the ladder I did grope, that's no joke, that's 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'er a word I spoke, tumblin' down, tumblin' down
And ne'er a word I spoke, tumblin' down.

Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, and I hate yous one and all
You're a bunch of muggers all, damn your eyes, damn your eyes
You're a bunch of muggers all, damn your eyes.
