Greg Brown – Shake Sugaree lyrics

I have a little song and it won't take long
And I'll sing it right once or twice-
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my chair and I pawned my bed,
And ain't got no place to lay my head.
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn
Everything I got.
Grow my tobacco and I spit my juice-
Well I would raise cain, but it ain't a bit of use
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my tobacco and I pawned my pipe,
Pawned everything that was in my sight.
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
I'm going sailing in a wooden shoe
Looking foir a star I could tell my troubles to
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
First star to the right and it's straight on 'til morn,
I never saw such such night since I was born.
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Have a little secret; I ain't going to tell,
I'm going to heaven in a brown pea shell.
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my horse and I pawned my plow.
Pawned everything, even pawned my old milk cow.
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Have a little secret and I ain't going to teel,
I'm going to heaven and I'm not going to ....
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Haver a little song and it won't take long
I
