INTRO: guitar plays eight bars of E while mandolin plays recurring melody.
[E]Love, you're gettin [E]lazy
[E]You're forgetting to [E]give me
[A]Sweet sugar, [A]words that I [E]want to hear[E]
You've been ne[B]glecting me[B]
You know [B]jealousy, it is [B]bitter as a green spring [E]berry[E]
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
[A]All....[B]...... a[E]round me[E]
You've got to [B]tend to what you pl[B]anted
And if you [B]take my love for g[B]ranted
Baby, I'll [E]shake.[B]..... the [A]sugar tree[A]
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]
[CBORUS AND BREAK] 
BRIDGE: Bm\.... F#\....
I've got to raise some commotion
Bm\.... F#\.... B\ \ \ \ B\ \ \ \
Before you show me some real emotion
[CBORUS - 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).
