About Sugar Blues

"Sugar Blues" is a song written in 1919 by Clarence Williams with words by Lucy Fletcher. It was recorded for the first time by Leona Williams and her Dixie Band in August 1922. Sara Martin recorded it with Williams at the piano later that year. It was later recorded by Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Fats Waller, and Ella Fitzgerald with Chick Webb and his Orchestra (1939) and others. The song became popular in 1936 as the trumpeter Clyde McCoy's theme song, featuring the sound of the growling wah-wah mute. As an instrumental, it was also recorded by Count Basie, Johnny Mercer, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Berl Olswanger and his Orchestra.

Have you heard these blues
That I'm gonna sing to you
When you hear them they will thrill you 
Through and through 
There the sweetest blues you ever heard
Now listen and don't say a word

Sugar blues 
Everybody's singing the sugar blues
The whole towns ringing
My loving man sweet as can be 
But the doggone fools 
Turned sour on me
I'm so unhappy 
Feel so unhappy 
I could lay me down a die
You could say what you choose
But I'm all confused
I got the sweet, sweet sugar blues 
More sugar 
I've got the sugar blues

Sugar blues
Every singing the sugar blues
My loving man sweet as can be 
But the doggone fools 
Turned sour on me
I'm so unhappy 
Feel so unhappy 
I could lay me down a die
You could say what you choose
But I'm all confused
I got the sweet, sweet sugar blues 
More sugar 
I've got the sugar blues

Yea!
