Verse 1
Dm                     F            Dm
Went out last night to take a look around 
C                       Am
Met little Sadie and I blowed her down
C                   C
Went back home, and i got into bed
Am                    Dm
Forty-four smokeless under my head 

Verse 2
Woke up the next morning about half past nine
The hacks and the buggies all standing in line
The gents and the gamblers standing all around
Taking little Sadie to her burying ground

Verse 3
Well I began to think what a deed I'd done 
Grabbed my hat and away I run
Made a good run, but a little too slow 
They overtook me in Jericho 

Verse 4
I'm standing on the corner reading a bill
Along came the sheriff from Thomasville 
Says "Young man, aint' your name Brown? 
Remember the night you blowed Sadie down?" 

Verse 5
Oh, yes sir, my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
First degree and the second degree 
Got any papers woould you read 'em to me

Verse 6
Well they took me downtown all dressed in black 
Put me on the train and sent me back 
Sent me back to the county jail
I had nobody for to go my bail 

Verse 7
The judge and the jury they took the stand
The judge held the paper in his right hand
Forty-one days, forty-one nights 
Forty-one years to wear the ball and stripes
