Shake the sugar tree

Pam Tillis

 DD
 Love, you're gettin lazy
 DD
 You're forgetting to give me
 GGD
 Sweet sugar,    words that I want to hear
 A
You've been neglecting me
 AAD
You know jealousy, it is bitter as a green spring berry
And just like (E)fruit from a (E)fickle vine
(E)You turn sweet in the (E)nick of time
(A)Love, you only (A)come alive when you're (E)losin me (E)
And it's a (B)childish game (B)
I've got to (B)shake you up, just to (B)wake you up
To make you (E)love me (E)
CHORUS: E E E E
I'll shake the sugar tree 'til I feel your love falling
 GAD
        All.......... around me
 AA
        You've got to tend to what you planted
 AA
        And if you take my love for granted
 DAG
        Baby, I'll shake...... the sugar tree
BREAK: |E |E |E |E
(E)Another night and you're (E)sleeping
(E)I'm awake and I'm (E)dreaming
(A)Oh honey, (A)'bout the way that it (E)used to be (E)
A little (B)time's gone by (B)
Do you (B)think that I'm con-(B)tent
With the cookin and the (B)payin' of rent
No, I (B)wanna know if you're (E)love's all spent (E)
(CHORUS AND BREAK)
BRIDGE: Bm\.... F I've got to raise some commotion
Bm\.... F Before you show me some real emotion
(CHORUS - REPEAT AND FADE)
I like to play B7 instead of B in the verses. I also like to play B7 in
place of E in the last half bar of verses 2 and 3 (leading into chorus).
