Well, my name it is Sam Hall, Sam Hall
Yes, my name it is Sam Hall, it is Sam Hall
My name it is Sam Hall an' I hate you, one an' all
An' I hate you, one and all
Damn your eyes

I killed a man, they said, so they said
I killed a man, they said, so they said
I killed a man, they said an' I smashed in his head
An' I left him layin' dead
Damn his eyes

But a-swingin', I must go, I must go
A-swingin', I must go, I must go
A-swingin', I must go while you critters down below
Yell up, "Sam, I told you so"
Well, damn your eyes!

I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd
I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd
I saw Molly in the crowd an' I hollered, right out loud
"Hey there Molly, ain't you proud?
Damn your eyes"

Then the Sheriff, he came to, he came to
Ah yeah, the Sheriff, he came to, he came to
The Sheriff, he come to an' he said, "Sam, how are you?"
An' I said, "Well, Sheriff, how are you
Damn your eyes"

My name is Samuel, Samuel
My name is Samuel, Samuel
My name is Samuel an' I'll see you all in hell
An' I'll see you all in hell
Damn your eyes
