There ain't no money to buy cocaine, sugar babe
There ain't no money to buy cocaine, sugar babe
There ain't no money to buy cocaine
Burn your nose and rot your brain, sugar babe
Sugar babe

I woke up this morning blues all around, sugar babe
I woke up this morning blues all around, sugar babe
I woke up this morning blues all around
Threw on my rags and walked 'round town

Standing on a corner don't you see, sugar babe
Standing on a corner don't you see, sugar babe
Standing on a corner don't you see
They hauled me away for vagrancy, sugar babe

Leave that red whiskey alone, sugar babe
Leave that red whiskey alone, sugar babe
Gives you paulsey in your bones, sugar babe, sugar babe

Whatcha gonna do when the meat gives out, sugar babe
Whatcha gonna do when the meat gives out, sugar babe
Whatcha gonna do when the meat gives out
Standing on the corner mouth and a pout, sugar babe
Aw, sugar babe

Chattanooga is a fine old town, sugar babe
Chattanooga is a fine old town, sugar babe
Chattanooga is a fine old town
You get a little crazy then burn your house down
Sugar babe, sugar babe

I said Chattanooga is a fine old town, sugar babe
Chattanooga is a fine old town, sugar babe
Chattanooga is a fine old town
You get a little crazy then burn your house down
Sugar babe
