Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

In "Nebber Do To Gib It Up So", the last verse goes


Fella on de woodpile barkin' like a dog

Toad in de millpond sittin' on a log

Possum up a gum tree sarcy fat and dirty

Come kiss me girls or I'll run like turkey


What is that word, and how do you pronounce it?

Tim, "Sarcy" is used for Sassy (disrespectful, impudent) or "Saucy" (Impertinent,disrespectful,etc.), as in "She's looking mighty fat and sassy". 

"Sarcy", is still commonly used in certian parts of the mountain South.
