“Sam Hall”
Artist: The Dubliners
Albums: The Dubliners (Disc 1) (1998)

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've robbed both great and small
Me neck will pay for all
When I die, when I die
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'd 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

They took me to coothill
In a cart, in a cart
They took me to coothill
In a cart
They took me to coothill
Where I stopped to write my will
For the best of friends must part
So must I, so must I
For 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 he pulled his rope
But ne'ar a word I spoke
Tumbling down, tumbling down
But ne'ar a word I spoke
Tumbling 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've robbed both great and small
Me neck will pay for all
When I die, when I die
Me neck will pay for all
When I die
