Shake the sugar tree  Pam Tillis

[D]Love, you're gettin [D]lazy
[D]You're forgetting to [D]give me
[G]Sweet sugar,    [G]words that I [D]want to hear
You've been ne[A]glecting me
You know [A]jealousy, it is [A]bitter as a green spring [D]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
        [G]All....[A]...... a[D]round me
        You've got to [A]tend to what you pl[A]anted
        And if you [A]take my love for g[A]ranted
        Baby, I'll [D]shake.[A]..... the [G]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).
