After the intro and each verse, Leadbelly does a sort of spoken part.  
At these times, he just keeps strumming the strings open like this: 


  "This song was made about a man and a woman, this man wanted to marry the woman, she didn't want him" etc.

Then, at the end of the song, Leadbelly, says something like, "little girl jumped on and played the piano", 
and he plays this part that sort of sounds like piano, using harmonics:
