(ragtime piano)

I met a man the other day
What you reckon he say?
'Is you the lady, givin' that gravy away?
'If you is, I will be back today'

You come an get some
But you sho' can't stay long
I got too many, now here
To be waitin' on

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
Don't mean, maybe
I'm givin' my gravy away

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
I'm sellin' my po' chops
Givin' my gravy away

Boys, I been sellin' good 'nuff
For two, three days
Some a-this stuff
I'm sure got to give away

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
Don't mean, maybe
I'm givin' my gravy away
(piano)

'Play it now!'

'Well, all right, now!'

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
I'm sellin' my po' chops
Givin' my gravy away

Up this mo'nin
I see'd the man at my back do'
He's been there all night
Tryin' to get some mo'

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
Don't mean, maybe
Giivin' my gravy away

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away

I know'd a man
He named Uncle Neal
If you don't give some
I'll bet you'll catch him steal

I'm sellin' my po' chops
But I'm givin' my gravy away
I don't mean, maybe
I'm givin' my gravy away.
