  Self Portrait recording session 4, Columbia Studios, NYC - 3.mar.1970  
 
Went out last night to take a little round
I met little Sadie an' i blowed her down
Ran right home an' i went to bed
With a forty four smokeless under my head

Went out last night to take a little round
I met little Sadie an' i blowed her down
Ran right down an' i went to bed
With a forty four smokeless under my head

I began to think "What a deed i done ?"
Grabbed my head an' away i've run
Made a good run but i ran too slow
They overtook me down in jericho

Standin' on the corner ringin' my bell
Up stepped sheriff from Thomasville
He says "Young man is your name Brown?
Remember the night that you blowed little Sadie down."

"Oh yes sir my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in first degree"
"First degree an' second degree
Got any papers will you serve 'em to me."

Took me downtown an' they dressed me in black
They put me on a train an' they brought me back
Had no one to go my bail
They crammed me back into the county jail.

Judge an' jury they took their  stand
Judge had the papers in his hand
41 days, 41 nights, 41 years
To wear the ball an' stripes  up
