Who is Sam I Am?

From Kenny Rogers song - The Last Ten Years

said by Kenny Rogers :

We lost Minnie Pearl, Ron Reagan and Sam I Am
We even lost Superman, mhm.

Who's this Sam I Am he's singing about?

He's probably using it as a loose synonym for Dr. Seuss (author of Green Eggs and Ham), who died in 1991.

Ah! So I guessed right. I thought it was someone else, since Dr. Seuss died in 1991, and this song was released in 2006. So 2006 minus 10 years is 1996. He died before that

Yeah, Wikipedia's disambiguation page didn't seem to offer many other possibilities:

I'm pretty sure that was the wino I use to see staggering down the alley urinating on my mother's rose bushes in Philly muttering "Sam I Am......Sam I Am"

Kenny was pissed that Van Halen fired Sammy Hagar in 1996 and again in 2005.

SAM I AM was persistent because he got him to try green eggs and ham, and you know what? He liked green egg and ham, and he will in them with a fox, and he'll eat them from a box.

I would have to disagree. As well, to my understanding,
he does not like them in a house,
and does not like them with a mouse.

I always figured that Sam I Am didn't want to eat his food and was trying to pawn it off on someone else to eat.

I think you have the story.

I believe someone conned Sam into trying them 1st, poisoned his brain, can't speak correctly & is now poisoning Yoda!
