SHAKE SUGAREE
(C) Elizabeth Cotten arr by Bob Dylan


I've got a secret
I ain't gonna tell
I'm goin' to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I pawned my watch, an' I pawned my chain
[Even I don't deserve myself, so ?] ashamed
Oh, Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I've got a song to sing
Ain't very long
I'm gonna sing it right if it take me all night long
Oh, Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I've got a secret
I ain't gonna tell
I'm goin' to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn't we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn
