I have a little song and it won't take long
And I'll sing it right once or twice-
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree

Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my chair and I pawned my bed,
And ain't got no place to lay my head.
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn
Everything I got.
Grow my tobacco and I spit my juice-
Well I would raise cain, but it ain't a bit of use
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my tobacco and I pawned my pipe,
Pawned everything that was in my sight.
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
I'm going sailing in a wooden shoe
Looking for a star I could tell my troubles to
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
First star to the right and it's straight on 'til morn,
I never saw such such night since I was born.
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Have a little secret; I ain't going to tell,
I'm going to heaven in a brown pea shell.
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Pawned my horse and I pawned my plow.
Pawned everything, even pawned my old milk cow.
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
Have a little secret and I ain't going to tell,
I'm going to heaven and I'm not going to ....
Oh lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
Everything I got is in the pawn.
Everything I got.
I have a little song and it won't take long...
