Kevin: I listened to Fiddlin' John Carson's recording too, and I can't make any sense either out of the words you've marked with "????" – however, here's how I hear the last verse:
White gal smell like powder and paint, the yella gal smells the same,That last phrase, "smellin' just the same" seems a little to un-clever to be believable. I have a hunch Carson usually sang something a little raunchier and he cleaned it up for the recording session.
Black gal use no powder and paint, smellin' just the same!
