The Prodigals Jackie Hall Lyrics

Last updated:

My name is Jackie Hall, Jackie Hall, Jackie Hall,
My name is Jackie Hall, Jackie Hall.
My name is Jackie Hall, and I’ve robbed both great and small
They’re a gang of muckers all, damn their eyes.

And I killed the man they said, so they said. etc.
I killed the man they said, for I cracked his bloody head,
And they found him lying dead, damn his eyes.

And they took me to the quad, etc
They took me to the quad, and they left me there by god.
Fastened to a chain and rod, damn their eyes.

Their chaplain he did come, etc.
Their chaplain he did come, and he looked so bloody glum
As he talked of kingdom come, damn his eyes.

And the captain he came too, etc
The captain he came too, with his boys in blue,
Saying “Jack, we’ll see you through,” damn his eyes.

Up the scaffold I must go
While the creatures down below
Mutter “Jack, we told you so,” damn their eyes.

This will be my knell, etc.
When I bid you all farewell
I will see you down in hell, down below.
