lyrics

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

I have candles lily white hanging high, hanging high
I have candles lily white hanging high,
I have candles lily white and I stole them all by night
They shall fill my room with light till I die, till I die
They shall fill my room with light till I die

They tell me that in jail I’ll go dry, I’ll go dry
They tell me that in jail I’ll go dry,
They tell me that in jail I shall drink no small ale
But be hanged if e’er I fail, till I die, till I die
But be hanged if e’er I fail, till I die

Oh, they took me to Cootehill in a cart, in a cart
Oh, they took me to Cootehill in a cart
Oh, they took me to Cootehill where 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

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