Lyr. Add: OH! SAM
Will S. Hays, 1872

1
Oh! Sammy put dat banjo down, O Sam!
You god for, nuffen lazy hound, O Sam!
O I drive de dog in, out de rain,-
Milk de cows for Liza Jane,-
Liza got de hoopin' cough,
De old man's drunk in de stable loft,

Chorus-
Oh! Sammy, just you put dat banjo down,
De hog's in de garden rooting up de groun',
De mule am dead an' de hoss am sick,
Come here, Sam, I want you quick,
You hear me, O Sam!
2
De coon an' possum settin' on de limb, O Sam!
I eat so much it makes me slim, O Sam!
O I can't get married, any more,
Or slide wid Liza on de cellar door,
De wind blows hard, it's gwine to rain,-
Stuff dat hat in de winder pane,

Chorus-
Oh! Sammy, just you put dat banjo down,
De hog's in de garden rooting up de groun',
De mule am dead an' de hoss am sick,
Come here, Sam, I want you quick,
You hear me, O Sam!
3
De roof it leaks, de chimney smokes, O Sam!
Hold up your head like udder folks, O Sam!
Pull your har down on your head,
Pour more 'lasses on your bread,-
Send you off to go to school,
An' you come bak a bigger fool,

Chorus-
Oh! Sammy, .......
4
Ole Nelson's blind and fell in de well, O Sam!
Aunt Hannah's got a big sick spell, O Sam!
An' de calk laid down for to catch his breff,
An' de dog he barked himself to deff,
De cow run off, an' de well run dry,
An' Liza's blind in her off wheel eye,

Chorus-
Oh! Sammy, ....
5
I got married de udder day, O Sam!
My wife got mad an' run away, O Sam!
I tried to make her "come to taw;"
I laid my han' on her lower jaw,
She run straight home to stay wid her mudder,
An' leff me lookin' round for anudder,

Chorus-
Oh, Sammy, ....

One of Will Hays most popular minstrel songs.
