SAM HALL
By Johnny Cash

Transcribed by Toon Spin



This is an early Johnny Cash song that got released on his last album. I
just figured out the chords, other more proficient guitarists can figure
out the rest. ;) I just put the chords to the first verse as it's all
pretty much the same for the rest of the song.



C
Well, my name it is Sam Hall, Sam Hall

C                                      G
Yes, my name it is Sam Hall, it is Sam Hall

C                             F
My name it is Sam Hall, and I hate you one and all

C                      G             C
And 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, and I smashed in his head
And I left him layin' dead, damn his eyes

But I 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!

SOLO

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

And then the sherriff, he came too, he came too
Oh yeah the sherriff, he came too, he came too
The sherriff he come too, and he said, "Sam, how are you?"
And I said, "Well sherriff, how are YOU, damn your eyes."

My name is Samuel, Samuel
My name is Samuel, Samuel
My name is Samuel, and I'll see you all in Hell
I'll see you all in Hell, damn your eyes!
