Little Sadie 03:38
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

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

about

The Rosinators London, UK

“An incredibly inventive concoction of bluegrass, Cajun dance tunes and gospel country from this London three-piece” [The Sunday Times]. “Formed in 2001, they blazed out of the traps with dynamic three-part vocal harmonies and fiery twin-fiddle attacks driven by crackin' guitar picking." [Edinburgh Festival Fringe] ... more
