sam hall lyrics – johnny cash

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 and all.
an’ i hate you, one and all:
d*mn 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,
d*mn 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, d*mn your eyes!

[instrumental break]

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?
“d*mn your eyes.”

then the sherriff, he came to; he came to.
ah, yeah, the sherriff, he came to; he came to.
the sherriff, he come to an he said: “sam, how are you?”
an i said: “well, sherriff, how are you,
“d*mn your eyes.”

my name is samuel, samuel.
my name is samuel, samuel.
my name is samuel, an’ i’ll see you all in h*ll.
an’ i’ll see you all in h*ll,
d*mn your eyes.
