Nice claw accompaniment. I thought this was called Little Sadie....

It is but it's "other" title is Bad Lee Brown. The Sheriff asks him "hey young fella is your name Brown, remember the night you blowed you Sadie down?" And he answers; "Yes sir, yes my name is Lee you got me for murder in the first degree." So the name Lee Brown is actually in the song. I haven't searched to see what crime this was that inspired the song but It might prove interesting to do so. That particular way I play that seems worthy of a bawdy house or saloon of ill repute.
