about

Hot on the heels of Sam's 'Later... with Jools Holland' appearance and the release of his much-lauded second album 'The No Testament', this live EP captures the bracing sounds of the album in front of a sold-out crowd at London's Union Chapel. From the gutsy electric blues of 'Waves & Tremors' to the crowd interplay on gospel chant 'The No Testament', 'Live At The Union Chapel EP' confirms Sam's status as a not-to-be-missed live act as well as an engaging songwriter and guitarist.

Track Name: Waves & Tremors
Where oh where can I go now
Where oh where can I go now
When the waves and tremors come
There’s nothing that can be done
Waves and tremors tore the buildings down

Waves and tremors tore the building down
I watched as a river full of rubble raise them to the ground
When the waves and tremors come
There’s nothing that can be done
Where oh where are my family now

Where oh where are my family now
I’m five miles west of Fukushima staring at a big black cloud
When the waves and tremors come
There’s nothing that can be done
Waves and tremors tore the buildings down
Waves and tremors tore the buildings down
Track Name: Jack Hall
My name it is Jack Hall,
Chimney sweep, chimney sweep,
My name it is Jack Hall, chimney sweep.
My name it is Jack Hall,
And I've robbed both great and small,
And my neck shall pay for all
When I die, when I die,
And my neck shall pay for all when I die.

All on the king’s highway
Night and day night and day
All on the king’s highway night and day
All on the king’s highway I’ve robbed and ladies gay
And my neck shall pay for all
When I die, when I die,
And my neck shall pay for all when I die.

I’ve a hundred pounds in store,
that's no joke, that's no joke,
I’ve a hundred pounds in store, that's no joke.
I’ve a hundred pounds in store
And I'll rob for hundreds more,
And my neck shall pay for all
When I die, when I die,
And my neck shall pay for all when I die.

At the trial they told me
You shall die, you shall die,
At the trial they told me, you shall die.
And they flung me into jail
Where I’ll drink no more strong ale,
And my neck shall pay for all
When I die, when I die,

They drove me up Tyburn Hill
In a cart, in a cart
They drove me up Tyburn Hill in a cart
They drove me up Tyburn Hill
That’s where I made my will,
The best of friends must part,
Fare you well, fare you well,
The best of friends must part
Fare you well

Up the ladder I did grope,
that's no joke, that's no joke
Up the ladder I did grope, that's no joke.
Up the ladder I did grope,
and the hangman fixed the rope,
Ne’er a word said I,
coming down, coming down,
Ne’er a word said I coming down.
Track Name: The One
I knew she was trouble boy
I knew she was odd
Odd like that old joke my dad told
The one I never got

I was besotted boy
Thought she was the one
Ten years and two children later
Where’s your mother gone?

But you’re still young, I’m sure there’s one
So go on my son, there’s always one

The wedding bells rang for us
And our faithless friends sang for us
As the service began I was wondering
If the Lord would call our bluff

Now I’m coughing up child support
Real fatherly love
And I buy you the world every weekend
As if that’s enough

But you’re still young, I’m sure there’s one
So go on my son, there’s always one

Make sure the vow you take
Is not making one to break
I made that mistake with your mother
‘Cos I thought she was the one
Track Name: The No Testament
I’m not sorry
I am not ashamed
So tell it to the pigeons
I am not to blame
It’s not what you came with
It’s what you leave behind
So leave me something that’s mine

From 9 to 5 you own me
You’ve been barking your orders for years
But at 5 past 5 I’m out the door
With my fingers in my ears
It’s not what you came with
It’s what you leave behind
So leave me something that’s mine

Woman I need you
To be there when things are tough
However close you are to me
It’s never close enough
It’s not what you came with
It’s what you leave behind
So leave me something that’s mine

I can see you suffer
I can feel your pain
When no one lends a helping hand
We all take that strain
It’s not what you came with
It’s what you leave behind
So leave me something that’s mine
