The Radiators – Little Sadie lyrics

Went Out Last Night to Take a Little Ride
Met A Little Sadie and Blowed Her Down
Run Right Home and Jumped In Bed
44 Smokeless Under My Bed

I Began To Think What a Deed I Done
I Grabbed My Hat and I Began To Run
Run Pretty Fast but I Run Too Slow
They Overtook Me Down in Jericho

I Was Standing On A Corner Just A Ringing My Bell
Up Pops the Sheriff from Thomasville
He Said Yo Man, Is Your Name Brown
Remember You Blowed Little Sadie Down?

I Said Yes Sir My Name Is Lee
Murdered Little Sadie in the First Degree
First Degree, Second Degree,
If You Got Any Papers Won't You Give Them to Me

They Took Me Down and Dressed Me in Black
Put Me on a Train and Rolled Me Back
I Had No One to Go My Bail
And I Ended Up In The County Jail.


Judge and the Jury They Took the Stand
Judge Had the Papers in His Right Hand
44 Days, 44 Nights
44 Years to Wear the Ball and Stripes

Went Out Last Night Just To Take a Little Ride
Met a Little Sadie, and I Blowed Her Down
