Shake It And Break It

Shake It And Break It – Charley Patton

Original:

Another way of playing it (at 2:40):

Key: F

[F]You can shake it you can [F6]break it you can

[C7]hang it in the wall

[C7]Throw it out the window,

[F]catch it ‘for it falls

[F]You can break it you can

[F6]hang it on the wall

[C7]It out the window

[F]catch it ‘for it falls

[F6]My jelly, [Bb6]my roll, sweet [F]mama don’t you let it [C7]fall

Everybody have a jelly roll like mine, I lives in town

I, ain’t got no brown, I, an’ I want it now

My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall

You can snatch it, you can grab it, you can break it

You can twist it, any way that I love to get it

I, had my right mind since I, I blowed this town

My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall

Jus’ shake it, you can break it

You can hang it on the wall

It out the window, catch it ‘for it fall

You can break it, you can hang it on the wall

It out the window, catch it ‘for it…

My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall

I ain’t got nobody here but me and myself

I, stay blue all the time, aw, when the sun goes down

My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall

You can shake it you can break it

You can hang it on the wall

It out the window, catch it ‘for it fall

You can break it, you can hang it on the wall

It out the window, catch?..

My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall

You can snatch it, you can grab it

You can break it, you can twist it

Any way that I love to get it

I, had my right mind, I, be worried sometime

‘Bout a jelly, my roll, sweet mama don’t you let it fall
