David Martin (Sam The Sham)

“Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw. Had two big horns and a wooly jaw. Wooly bully, wooly bully.”

He anchored the iconic Tex-Mex hit “Wooly Bully.” Founding Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs bassist David Martin plied supportive passages with a rhythm and blues disposition for a few platters and minor hits including “Ju Ju Hand,” “Lil’ Red Riding Hood,” and “Ring Dang Do.”

Following his Pharaohs foray, David ran a TV repair shop in Garland, Texas until he passed in 1987.
