Selling My Pork Chops
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


I met a man the other day
""What you write?"" he say
""Is you the lady givin' that gravy away?
""If it is I will be back today""
You can come and get some, but you can't stay long
I got two men I got to be waitin' on

I'm selling my pork chops
But I'm giving my gravy away
Don't mean maybe
I'm giving my gravy away

I'm selling my pork chops...

Boys, I've been selling good now for two-three days
Some of this stuff I sure got to give away

I'm selling my pork chops...

Up this morning, I see a man at my back door
He'd been there all night trying to get some more

I'm selling my pork chops...

I know a man he name of Caneal
If you don't give some I bet you'll catch him steal (not at all sure about this line)

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.

Memphis Minnie is buried in my church cemetery. People come from all over the world to visit her grave. You can walk right out of the church doors and get to her grave in the cemetery.

Steve Cheseborough I don’t know if her husbands grave is next to hers!! I know that her mother is buried in church cemetery.

Levinita Barlow

Wow cool!

Dj Rancho

Steve Cheseborough what church

Steve Cheseborough

She sure is! And now her husband's grave next to her is also marked. What a lovely spot.

Ralph Rotten

Her jams are so elemental to Blues. I can listen to her stuff all day.

R. Stone

I agree Ralph Rotten. This is so damned ironical, (catch the link between the term and the music?) my nickname when I was a kid was Rotten Ralph.

Jill Foley

What an amazing lady. Cannot stop playing all her recordings after following Paul Nicolas on BBC Radio 2. This is my favourite. Terrific voice and so talented and beautiful.

Philip Natale

Yes, she is the top dog for sure! She was my first connect to the blues when I was 15, and 48 years later I still love her! My music heroine!
