"Sam Hall" by Johnny Cash
[C]Well my name it is Sam Hall, Sam Hall
Yes my name it is Sam Hall, it is Sam [G7]Hall
My [C]name it is Sam [C7]Hall, and I [F]hate you one and [Fm]all
And I [C]hate you one and [G7]all, damn your [C]eyes.
[C]I killed a man they said, so they said
I killed a man they said, so they [G7]said
I [C]killed a man they [C7]said, and I [F]smashed in his [Fm]head
And I [C]left him layin' [G7]dead, damn his [C]eyes.
[C]Well a-swingin I must go, I must go
A-swingin I must go, I must [G7]go
A-[C]swingin I must [C7]go, while you [F]critters down be[Fm]low
Yell out [C]"Sam I told you [G7]so!", well damn your [C]eyes.
[C]I saw Molly in the crowd, in the crowd
I saw Molly in the crowd, in the [G7]crowd
I saw [C]Molly in the [C7]crowd, and I [F]hollered right out [Fm]loud
Hey there [C]Molly ain't you [G7]proud, damn your [C]eyes.
[C]Then the Seriff he came too, he came too
Aw yeah, the sheriff he came too, he came [G7]too
The [C]sheriff he come [C7]too, [F] and he said "Sam how are [Fm]you?"
And I said "[C]Well sheriff how are [G7]you? Damn your [C]eyes."
[C]My name is Samuel, Samuel
My name is Samuel, Samu[G7]el
My [C]name is Samu[C7]el, and I'll [F]see you all in [Fm]hell
And I'll [C]see you all in [G7]hell, damn your [C]eyes.
