I've got your picture and I'm going to put it in a frame

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 know you put me down

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

Oh, said fair brown, something's going on wrong
Oh, said fair brown, it’s something's going on wrong
Shuckin’ sugar
This here 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 want to 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
Man, I 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 said 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
