As I recall, it started as a standard broadsheet ballad about a condemned man repenting his sins. Something like: My name it is Jack Hall, Chimney sweep. .... My name it is Jack Hall, And my neck will pay for all... Sam Hall is a parody. There's a bawdier version, under the title "Knobby Hall" in either Rugby Songs or More Rugby Songs (published by the British paperback company Sphere.) Dan Goodman dsg[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
