  Self Portrait recording session 4, Columbia Studios, NYC - 3.mar.1970  

Went out last night just to take a little round
I met my little Sadie an' i brought her down
I ran right home an' i went to bed
With a 44 smokeless under my head.

I began to think what a deed i done
I grabbed my head an' i began to run
I made a good run but i ran too slow
They overtook me down in Jericho.

Standin on the corner as he's ringin' my bell
Up stepped the sheriff of Thomasville
He says, "Young man is your name Brown?
Remember you blowed little Sadie down?''

"Oh, yes sir my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in first degree''
"First degree an' second degree
If you got any papers, will you show them to me.''

Well they took me downtown an' they dressed me in black
They put me on a train an' they sent me back
I had no one for to go my bail
They crammed me back into the county jail, oh yes they did.

Now the judge an' the jury they took their stand
The judge had the papers in his right hand
Forty one days, forty one nights
Forty one years with the ball an' stripes, oh no.

Went out last night to take a little round
I met my little Sadie an' i blowed her down
I ran right home an' i went to bed
A 44 smokeless under my head.  up
