  • When they come to take you down
    When they bring that wagon around
    When they come to call on you
    And drag your poor body down

    Just one thing I ask of you
    There's just one thing for me
    Please forget you knew my name
    My darlin' Sugaree

    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me
    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me

    You thought you was the cool fool
    And never could do no wrong
    Had everything sewn up tight
    How come you lay awake all night long?

    Just one thing I ask of you
    There's just one thing for me
    Please forget you knew my name
    My darlin' Sugaree

    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me
    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me

    You know, in spite of all you gained
    You still had to stand out in the pouring rain
    One last voice is calling you
    And I guess it's time you go

    Just one thing I ask of you
    There's just one thing for me
    Please forget you knew my name
    My darlin' Sugaree

    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me
    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me

    Shake it up now Sugaree
    I'll meet you at the jubilee
    And if that jubilee don't come
    Baby, I'll meet you on the run

    Just one thing I ask of you
    Just one thing for me
    Please forget you knew my name
    My darlin' Sugaree

    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me
    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me

    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me
    Shake it, shake it Sugaree
    Just don't tell them that you know me Writer/s: JEROME J. GARCIA, ROBERT C. HUNTER
