I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN
I should have known that they’d put me down,
I should have known that my head might hit the ground.
I should have seen them all around,
I should have screamed but you can’t undo what is done …
They took my girl, one by one,
They took my girl and left her on the ground.
Now, I breathe my blood, I touch her arm,
She is so cold, my dear baby’s gone…
I’ll kill them all, I’ll put them down,
I’ll teach them all that my name is Samuel Hall !
I’ll burn their barns and I’ll rip out their tongues,
I’ll break some arms, I’ll crush all their bloody bones…!
Now, I’m drinking here all alone,
Now, I’m waiting for the sheriff to come…
They’ll hang me, before next morn’,
Be ready baby, your man is coming home…
