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 I rob both rich and small
But me neck will pay for all whem I die, when i die.
Yes me neck will pay for all whem I die

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 I bashed in his bloody head
And I left him bloody dead
Blast his eyes damn his Soul
And I left him bloody 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 , 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're a word I spoke, tumblin' down, tumblin' down
And ne're a word I spoke, tumblin' down

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 hates yers one and all
You're a bunch of bastards all
Blast your eyes. Damn your souls
You're a bunch of bastards all, Blast your eyes.



Collected in Darwin circa 1972 from the singing of Paul and Vinnie Lawler who introduced it as a music hall song
