Track Name: Little Sadie
1. Went out last night for to make a little round
I met Little Sadie and I blowed her down
Went back home and I got into bed
Forty-four smokeless under my head

2. Woke up next mornin' bout a half past nine
The hacks and the buggies all standing in line
Gents and the gamblers all standing around
Taking Little Sadie to her burying ground

3. And I got to thinkin' what a deed I done
I grabbed my hat and away I run
Made a good run, but a little to slow
They overtook me in Jericho

4. I's a standing on the corner reading the bill
When up stepped the sheriff from Thomasville
Said, "Young man, ain't your name Brown?
Remember that night you blowed Sadie down."

5. I said "Yes Sir, my name is Lee
I murdered little Sadie in the first degree
First degree and second degree
If you got any papers, won't you read 'em to me?"

6. They took me downtown and dressed me in black
Put me on a train and they sent me back
Crammed me back into the Thomasville Jail
Got no money for to go my bail

7. The judge and the jury they took the stand
The judge held the papers in his right hand
Forty-one days, forty-one nights
Forty-one years to wear the ball and stripes
ƒ
Forty-one years to wear the ball and stripes
Track Name: One Kind Favour
1. Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean

2. Well there's two white horses in a line
Well there's two white horses in a line
Well there's two white horses in a line
Carryin' me to my buryin' ground

3. Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Well there's three black coaches in the rain
Empty now from their heavy load

4. Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Did you ever hear that coffin sound
Being lowered into the ground

5. Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
Well there's one kind favour I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean
