Shake 'Em On Down

Lyrics: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars
Music: Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars

Played by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh & Friends in May 2013.

See my baby (yo mama)
Standing round (yo mama)
Somewhere baby (yo mama)
Shake 'em on down
Lord why must I holler
Lord I must shake 'em, shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down

If you go to my house, you'll see me nowhere around
You know why, somewhere baby (yo mama)
Shake 'em on down
Lord why must I holler
Lord I must shake 'em, shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down

Get your knees together, baby
Let your backbone slip
I'll tell you no [?] it down
Shake your, down like this
Lord why must I holler
Lord I must shake 'em, shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down

Lordy, me and my baby was out in the field
Heard that train as it left Mobile
Lord why must I holler
Lord I must shake 'em, shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down

Lord, if there's one thing in this world I crave
Big legged woman shake me down to my grave
Lord why must I holler
Lord I must shake 'em, shake 'em on down
Shake 'em on, shake 'em on down
Shake 'em on down, shake 'em on, shake 'em on down
[etc I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down
I'm so tired of hollerin', baby, I'll shake 'em on down
