I went to YouTube to get him singin' it for your convenience, but there wasn't one.
This guy's version is like, totally just as good though:

i'm a little late, but i'm so in love with sam. my favorite song is 'bring it on home to me'. it's really sad that he died so young and there is not many videos of him on the net! (sorry for my english - i'm brazilian!)
