Up on Sugar Hill we'd go walkin'
Hand in hand while the south wind blowed
Bob whites callin', black crows cawkin',
Countin' the warts on a toad in the road
Down in the mill pond swimmin' naked
Showin' more than we should have showed
We were just kids explorin' nature
Learnin' more than we should have knowed

Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill memories
Stealing sugar on the mountainside
Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill sugar
Sweeter than candy and cake and pie

A yellow dress drapin' off of my shoulder
Seein' myself in the lookin' glass
Older now and a little bit bolder
Thinkin' about our summers past
Up on Sugar Hill we'd go walkin'
Hand in hand up the mountainside
Teenage lovers plannin' and talkin'
Dreamin' of a future for you and I

Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill memories
Stealin' sugar on the mountain top
Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill sugar
Sweeter than ice cream and soda pop

Years have past, we're married with children
Our days are happy and our memories fond
We still find it quite appealin'
To go to Sugar Hill and swim naked in the pond

Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill memories
Stealin' sugar on the mountaintop
Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill sugar
Sweeter than ice cream and soda pop

Up on Sugar Hill there's a wealth of treasure
Down it's memory lane I go walking still
What it means to me is more than I can measure
Golden moments up on Sugar Hill

Up on Sugar Hill with the fireflies glowin'
Sound of katydids and the whipperwill
Honeysuckle bloomin' and a mountain stream flowin'
A little spot of heaven up on Sugar Hill

Up On Sugar Hill with the bobwhite's callin'
Black crows cawkin', and the soft wind blows
Up on Sugar Hill there are love birds talkin'
Up on Sugar Hill where the good times roll

Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill memories
Stealin' sugar on the mountainside
Sug, Sug, Sug, Sugar Hill sugar
Sweeter than candy and cakes and pies

A little spot of heaven up on Sugar Hill
