A "poke" was a term used primarily in the southern United States and meant a sack or a bag. The term "pig in a poke" refers to buying something sight unseen, where the buyer would be buying a concealed item in a bag that he had been told was a pig but without seeing it. Sometimes a cheat would sell a cat in place of a pig. When opened, the purchaser, having bought a "pig in a poke," would "let the cat out of the bag" -- i.e., revealing the truth. Linguists think the term "poke" can be traced back to 14th century English. Mattie carried her father's gun in a flour sack purchased from Mrs. Morgan, the innkeeper.

'The Wicked Flee' by Carter Burwell. The rest of the songs and composed score can be found here with corresponding scene descriptions.
