"Shake 'Em on Down [Alt] [Alternate Take]" as written by Fred Mcdowell and Alan Lomax....
If you see my baby, Lordy
Stand around you know we
Somewhere, baby, Lord, mama
Shakin' em on down
Lordy, must I low

(guitar)

'pick it'

If you come to my house
You don't find me around
You know we somewhere, baby
Lord, mama, shakin' em on down
Lordy, must I low

(guitar)

Put yo knees together
Baby, let yo backbone move
It t'aint a woman in town
Can shake 'em down like you
Lordy, must I low

(guitar)

Oh, lower 'um

Lord, I went up on a hill, baby
Lord, to get some ice
'Fore we got back, Lord
We shook 'em down twice
Lordy, must I low.

(guitar to end)
