George Jones - Who Shot Sam Lyrics




Well, I met Sammy Samson down in New Orleans
He had a lot of money and a big limousine
He took us honky-tonkin' on a Saturday night
We met Silly Milly, everything was all right
Her eyes started rollin', we should a-went a-bowlin'
Wham-bam, who shot Sam, my-my.

Well, Sam and Silly Milly, about a quarter to four
Was rompin' and a-stompin' on the hardwood floor
Along came Flirty Mirty bargin' in on the fun
Silly Milly got jealous and she pulled out a gun
Tables started crashin', fourty-four's a-flashin'
Wham-bam, who shot Sam, my-my.

Well, the police, fire chief, highway patrol
Knockin' down the front door with a big long pole
Sammy was a lyin' on the cold-cold floor
Shot through the middle with a fourty-four
Milly was a-cryin', Sam was surely dyin'
Wham-bam, who shot Sam, my-my.

Well, they took Silly Milly to the jail down town
Booked Silly Milly for a-shootin' old Sam
The judge he gave her twenty, Milly said that's a lot
You shouldn't give me nothing, he was already half shot
A-drinkin' white lightnin' started all the fightin'
Wham-bam, who shot Sam, my-my.

Well, the police, fire chief, highway patrol
Knockin' down the front door with a big long pole
Sammy was a lyin' on the cold-cold floor
Shot through the middle with a fourty-four
Milly was a-cryin', Sam was surely dyin'
Wham-bam, who shot Sam, my-my...

    "BamBam who shot sam" how would this be played on the raido nowadays or there would be offended complainers

    TheParanormalGamingNetwork

    Virgil Cardinal Glad I thought I was only one who noticed

    Marvin Thayer

    @TheParanormalGamingNetwork Johnny Cash's Ballad of a Teenage Queen is the twinkle, twinkle little star melody.

    Kevin Miller

    I know the artist of this son- g & Root Beer is George Jon es, but to tell the truth, it do- esn't even SOUND like him.

  15. ronaldt491

    Would like to have either the Buick or Ford in the video. Goes back to my era!!! No catalytic converter and two tons of Detroit Steel. Hit one of todays cars with these and plastic would fly all over the place.

    Jackson Rabon

    ronaldt491 not true lol today's cars are much safer there might be more metal on those cars but the actual engineering and safety of them were trash I used to think like you until I watched a couple vids

    Marcus James

    Jackson Rabon but new cars aren't bad ass

    killjerryonly

    ronaldt491 you are an idiot snowflake.

  16. Michael Boyce

    He mentions "White Lightnin'" in this! BTW,it was co-written by Jape Richardson,AKA "The Big Bopper" He'd written others,too,including "Lightnin"!

  17. Michael Boyce

    This was covered by Roger Miller,too,also signed to Mercury/Starday as well!
