lyrics

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 youz one and all, and my
neck must pay for all, here I die.

Oh they treat you like a slave,
that's no lie, that's no lie.
Oh they treat you like a slave, that's no lie.
Oh they treat you like a slave,
from the cradle to the grave.
But the rich must help the poor, so must I.

I have three fine sons the feed
That's no joke, that's no joke
And a wife torn down from need
That's no joke.
But the boss he said to me,
“Get your brats out on the street!”
For they cost too much to feed,
That's no lie, that no lie!
My wife died from misery! That's no lie.

Oh I struck the bastard down,
I don't deny, don't deny.
Raised the black flag up on high, for anarchy.
Oh I struck the bastard down.
Down with boss and church and crown!
But they hunted me to the ground, like a dog.

Oh they took me to Cootehill,
in a cart, in a cart.
Oh they took me to Cootehill in a cart.
And the priest he said to me,
“repent or face eternity,”
“Keep your rich man's god from me.”
So said I, so said I.
“He never gave a damn for me” So said I.

Up the ladder I did grope,
that's no joke, that's no joke.
And me sons looked on with tears in their eyes.
Up the ladder I did grope,
and the hangman pulled the rope.
And the last words I spoke,
tumbling down, tumbling down.
“Liberty for all mankind!” 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 hate youz one and all,
and my neck must pay for all, here I die.
