In general, no.

But you can find swag kits for sale that supposedly allow you to swag a ceiling light over to a wall receptacle. I don't know if they are safe or even code-compliant. Contrary to popular belief, not everything you find in the store is either.

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to change the source?

i want to hang a light over my dining room table but i dont have an electrical connection in the ceiling. i tried to look for the lights that are all set up for plug in, but there either ugly, to expensive, or to small or to big. the only decent ones are the hard wire style, ive been to lowes, home depot and ikea and cant find anything there. i dont want to start doing a big wiring project either. do you know of any places on the internet or other places i might be able to go to find the swag lights??

Moving the electrical box is a very small wiring project. Do it right. You'll be glad you did.
