Shake Sugaree Lyrics by Taj Mahal

 

Shake Sugaree by Taj Mahal


{The name of this song is 'Shake Sugaree'
'Shake Sugaree', is a song written by Elizabeth Cotton
And originally sung by her great grand daughter
And she sang this song at the Newport Folk Festival
Somewhere around 1968}
{And Elizabeth Cotton is a writer of very fine songs
Such as, 'Freight Train' and 'Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie'
And she wanted this song to be sung by children
All over the place and all over the world
And that's why we are bringin' it to you}
{Also, many other famous people have recorded this song
And it's a great song to sing
Remember, this is 'Shake Sugaree'}
Have a little song
Won't take long
Sing it right
Once or twice
Oh Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree?
Everything I got is down in pawn
Everything I got is down in pawn
Pawned my watch
Pawned my chain
Pawned everything
Even pawned my own name
Oh Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree?
Everything I got is down in pawn
Everything I got, I got in pawn
Have a secret
I ain't gonna tell
I'm goin' to heaven
And I ain't goin' to
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree?
Everything I got is down in pawn
Everything I got is down in pawn
Pawned my buggy
Pawned my plough
Pawned everything
Even pawn my old cow
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree?
Everything I got is down in pawn
Everything I got is down in pawn
Have a secret
I ain't gonna tell
I'm goin' to heaven
In a brown pea shell
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree?
Everything I got is down in pawn
Everything I got is down in pawn
Have a little song
Won't take long
Sing it right
Once or twice
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree?
Everything I got, I got in pawn
Everything I got is down in pawn
