The Ballad of Honest Sam

Capo on the first fret

(G) (Am) (D) (G)

(G) There never was a bad man in the (Am) movies
Who could (D) lie and cheat like Honest (G) Sam
In the card room down at (Am) Louie's
He'd (D) take the pay from the working (G) man

    (D) Lay your cards on the (G) table
    And (A) everybody show his (D) hand
    (G) Foiled again you sad-eyed (Am) loser
    Foiled (D) again by Honest (G) Sam

Once there came a simple stranger
And he caught Sammy cheating, words was said
Sam just winked at Joe the Strangler
And Joe he shot that stranger dead

    Lay your cards on the table
    And everybody show his hand
    Foiled again you sad-eyed loser
    Foiled again by Honest Sam

Sam, he lives up in a mansion
And he sails his ship out on the sea
And if the devil paid his ransom
I guess he paid for you and me

    Lay your cards on the table
    And everybody show his hand
    Foiled again you sad-eyed loser
    Foiled again by Honest Sam
