Shuckin' Sugar Blues (3077-2) - Blind Lemon Jefferson
Chicago, c. Oct. 1926
A position, pitched at F# (3 steps low)

I've got your picture and I'm goin' to put it in a frame,
I've got your picture, gonna put it in a frame,
Shuckin’ sugar.
And then if you leave town, we can find you just the same.

Now if you don't love me, please don't dog me around,
If you don't love me, please don't dog me around,
Shuckin’ sugar.
Like you dog me around, I'll know you've put me down.

I know my baby thinks the world in all of me,
I know my baby thinks the world in all of me,
Shuckin’ sugar.
Every time she smiles, she shine her light on me.

Oh, I said, fair brown, something's goin' on wrong,
Oh, I said, fair brown, it’s something's goin' on wrong,
Shuckin’ sugar.
Since the woman I love, she's done been here and gone.

Oh, listen, fair brown, don't you want to go,
Oh, listen, fair brown, don't you wanna go,
Shuckin’ sugar.
Going to take you across the water where that brownskin man can't go.

Lord, I'm worried here, worried everywhere,
I am worried here, worried everywhere,
Shuckin’ sugar.
Now I've just started home and I'll not be worried there.

Lord, I'm tired of marryin’ and I’m tired of this settlin’ down,
I say, I'm tired of this marryin’, tired of this settlin’ down,
Shuckin’ sugar.
I only want to stay like I am and slip from town to town.
