I'm not sure about some of the words. Some websites have them, but it's obviously 
not what he's saying. The song is around eighty years old so the sound obviously 
isn't very clear.

When playing the verses, just play the chords with alternating bass notes. For the 
Bb6 chord, just barre the G, B, and high E strings at the 3rd fret, hit the bass 
note once and strike the chord twice.

Intro:
|F     |C7    |F     |C7    |
|F     |C7    |F     |B6 F |
|C7  F |C7    |F     |C7    |
|F     |C7    |F     |B6 F |
|C7  F |


C7
You can shake it, you can break it, you can hang it on the wall.
F
But I don't wanna, (I'm not sure about lyrics here.)
C7
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall.
F
But I don't wanna, catch it 'fore it falls.
    B6       F           C7                   F
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama don't you let it fall.

Hey :) im happy you posted this! (i was looking for the canned heat version but not alot of their chords/tabs are posted online but they did alot of covers of old blues songs)
Anyways, these are the lyrics i could find from the line you didnt know:

You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
Throw it out the window, catch it 'fore it roll
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls

Thanks for the chords, looked up lyrics
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
Throw it out the window, catch it 'fore it roll
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Everybody have a jelly roll like mine, I lives in town
I, ain't got no brown, I, an' I want it now
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can snatch it, you can grab it, you can break it,
you can twist it, any way that I love to get it
I, had my right mind since I, I blowed this town
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Jus' shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
.. it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
I ain't got nobody here but me and myself
I, stay blue all the time, aw, when the sun goes down
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it fall
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
You can snatch it, you can grab it,
you can break it, you can twist it,
any way that I love to get it
I, had my right mind, I, be worried sometime
'Bout a jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Just shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
I know I been to town, I, I walked around
I, start leavin' town, I, I fool around
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Just shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it falls
You can break it, you can hang it on the wall
...it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it fall
Jus' shake it, you can break it,
you can hang it on the wall
... it out the window, catch it 'fore it...
My jelly, my roll, sweet mama, don't let it.
