    Lyrics

    {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
