[Intro]
Went out last night to take a little round
I met my little Sadie and I brought her down
I ran right home and I went to bed
With a forty-four smokeless under my head

[Verse 1]
I began to think what a deed I'd done
I grabbed my hat and I began to run
I made a god run but I ran too slow
They overtook me down in Jericho

[Verse 2]
Standing on a corner a ringing' my bell
Up stepped the sheriff from Thomasville
He said 'Young man is your name Brown
Remember you blowed Sadie down."

[Verse 3]
"Oh yes sir, my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
First degree and second degree
If you've got any papers will you serve them to me?"

[Verse 4]
Well they took me down town and they dressed me in black
They put me on a train and they sent me back
I had no one to go my bail
They crammed me back into the county jail

[Verse 5]
Oh, yes they did
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 the stripes
Oh, no!

[Outro]
Went out last night to take a little round
I met little Sadie and I blowed her down
I ran right home and I went to bed
A forty-four smokeless under my head
