Doc Watson sings Little Sadie.

The sound level is really low, you need to crank up the computer volume. Don't worry, it won't blow up the speakers!

"Went out one night for to make a little round
I met Little Sadie and shot her down
Went back home and I got in my bed
Forty-four pistol under my head

Waked up next morning 'bout a 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

Then I begin to think what a deed I'd done
I grabbed my hat and away I run
I made a good run but a little too slow
They overtook me in Jericho

I's standing on the corner reading the bill
When up stepped the sheriff from Thomasville
And he says young man ain't your name Brown
Remember the night you shot Sadie down

I says yes sir my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
In the first degree in the second degree
If you got any papers won't you read 'em to me

They took me downtown and dressed me in black
Put me on the train and started me back
They crammed me back in that Thomasville jail
And I had no money for to go my bail

That judge and jury they took their stand,
The judge had the papers in his right hand
Forty-one days and forty-one nights
Forty-one years to wear the ball and the stripes"
