[D/G] [D/F#] [D/A] [D]  
[D]There are [G]shadows on the [D]sidewalks
[G] Of the [A]city streets at [D]night
And the alleyways a[G]nd the ugly things
[Bm7] Are hidden from the [A7]light
[D] And somewhe[G]re soon my [D]baby
[G] Gonna [A]sell her soul [D]again
For a custom-[G]tailed [D]lady k[Bm7]iller
[G] They [A7]call Sugar [D]Man
[D] I searched the [G]backstreet b[D]arrooms
[G] And [A]every cheap [D]hotel
Askin' for [G]my baby
[Bm7] They all knew her w[A7]ell, well
They [D]said she's [G]out there [D]workin'
[G] For the [A]wages of a [D]sin
If you wanna [G]find your [D]baby, [Bm7]baby
[G] Look [A]for Sugar [D]Man
[D] [G] Well tonight I [D]found her
[G] In the [A]sorry s[D]ide of [D/G]town[D/F#] [D/A] [D/D]
[D] Lyin' cold u[G]pon the bed

And I [G]stuck it thru the [D]money[Bm7]
She had [G]made [A]for sugar [D]man
[D] [G] There are shadows on the [D]sidewalks
[G] [A]City streets at [D]night
And the alleyways [G]and the ugly things
[Bm7] Are hidden from the l[A7]ight
But the [D]sun gonna [G]shine [D]tomorrow
[G] On [A]some dirty garbage [D]can[D/G] [D/F#] [D/A] [D/A]
