Charley Patton

Charley Patton (between April 1887 and 1891 – April 28, 1934), also known as Charlie Patton, was an American Delta blues musician. He is considered by many to be the "Father of the Delta Blues", and is credited with creating an enduring body of American music and personally inspiring just about every Delta blues man (Palmer, 1995). Musicologist Robert Palmer considers him among the most important musicians that America produced in the twentieth century. Many sources, including musical releases and his gravestone, spell his name “Charley” even though the musician himself spelled his name "Charlie." more »

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
Out the window, catch it 'fore it roll
You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
Out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it 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 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 ya let it fall

Jus' shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't 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 let it fall

You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it fall
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
Out the window, catch...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't 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 let it fall

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall

I know I been to town, I, I walked around
I, start leavin' town, I, I fool around
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall

Just shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall

Jus' shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall
It out the window, catch it 'fore it
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it
