Went out last night to take a little round, I met a little Sadie and I blowed her down
Bummed a ride home, got into bed, forty-four smokeless under my head

I began to think what the deed I'd done, I grabbed my hat and away'd I run
I made a good run just a little too slow, they overtook me in Jericho

Standin' on the corner, ringin' the bell, up walked the sheriff from Thomasville
Said "young man is your name Brown? 'Member that night you shot Sadie down?"

"Oh yes sheriff my name is Lee, I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
First degree, second degree, if you got any papers you can read 'em to me"

Took me downtown, dressed me in black, put me on a train and they sent me back
Had no one for to go my bail, they crammed me back in the county jail

Judge and the jury took their stand, the judge held the papers in his right hand
forty-one days, forty-one nights, forty-one years to wear the ball and the stripes
