Little Sadie (Traditional)
Went out one night to make a little round I met Little Sadie and I shot her down Went back home, jumped into bed 44 pistol under my head I woke up in the morning about a quarter past nine The hacks and the buggies standing in line Gents and gamblers standing around Taking Little Sadie to her burying ground I began to think of what a deed I'd done I grabbed my hat and away I did run Made a good run, just a little too slow They overtook me in Jericho I was standing on the corner a reading a bill And up comes the sheriff from Thomasville He said "hey, mister is your name Brown Remember the night you shot Sadie down" I said "Oh yes sir, but my name is Lee And I murdered Little Sadie in the first degree First degree and the second degree Got any papers won't you read them to me" So they took me on down and they dressed me in black Put me on a train and started me back All the way back to the Thomasville jail I had no money for to go to my bail The judge and the jury they took their stand The judge had the papers in his right hand Forty one days, forty-one nights forty-one years to wear the ball and stripes
