Sam Hall
See also Samuel Small and Sam Hall (as per The Fables)

Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall, chimney sweep
Oh, me name it is Sam Hall and I rob both great and small
And me neck will pay for all, when I die, when I die
And me neck will pay for all when I die.

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, tumblin down, tumblin down
And ne'er a word I spoke tumblin down

Oh they took me to Coote Hill in a cart, in a cart
Oh they took me to Coote Hill in a cart
Oh they took me to Coote Hill and 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
