SAM HALL

 

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 rob both rich 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 Ill 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 and I stopped to make 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, tumbling down, tumbling down

And ne'er a word I spoke tumbling down

 

I've got candles lily white, standing high, standing high

I've got candles lily white, standing high

I've got candles lily white, oh I stole them in the night

For to light me to the place, where I lie, where I lie

For to light me to the place, where I lie
