Drop That Sack-Papa Charlie Jackson
Papa Charlie, A position, standard tuning, unidentified tenor banjoist
NOTE: The parenthetic passage is spoken.

Now, I got a gal, works in the yard
Brings me meat and she brings me lard
The only thing that keeps me barred
People she works for don't 'low me the yard
Gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

REFRAIN: Why don't you drop that sack?
Why don't you drop that sack?
Why don't you drop that sack?
Oh, honey, won't you drop that sack?
I'm gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

Now I got a gal, she lives on a hill
She took her corn, she took it to the mill
The miller told her, wouldn't take no dough,
"I'll grind your corn into sweet jellyroll."
Gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

REFRAIN: Why don't you drop that sack?
Why don't you drop that sack?
Aw, drop that sack
Why don't you drop that sack?
I'm gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

I asked for one, she's throwing me two
Down to the crap game, me and you
I shot two dollars, my point was nine
Trey come a-runnin' and the chips went flyin'
Gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

REFRAIN: Why don't you drop that sack?
(Come on, honey and drop that sack.
Put on your stockings then, c'mon and drop that sack.
What are you doing? Come on and drop that sack now.)
I'm gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?

Says, I went to the gypsy, to get me a hand
Seen my gal walking with another man
I says, "You may go, you'll come back.
If you ever come back, you got to drop that sack."
Gonna tell you one thing, it's a natural fact
Whyn't you come on home and drop that sack?
