Sugar Dumpling  Sam Cooke

One of my favourite Sam Cooke songs. This is my interpretation of the song and I play it
with a similar strumming technique to that on Wonderful World, also by Sam Cooke.
I play it with the capo on the 3rd, but that's just because I like singing it at that pitch.
Any suggestions for change are welcomed! Otherwise, enjoy. The song isn't too difficult
and an absolute belter to sing along too.

[G]Sugar dumpling, [Em7]you're my baby
[Cadd9]I love you in every wa[G]y
Sugar dumpling,[Em7] you're my baby
[Cadd9]My love grows stronger everyda[G]y, yeah
[G]Listen, while I tell you a s[Em7]tory
[G]A story about my gir[Em7]l

[G]Because she's the sweetest thing in this [Em7]whole world
[G]Oh, whenever I'm feeling ba[Em7]d
[G]Right away she puts me to b[Em7]ed
[G]And she hires two nurses, [Cadd9]one to hold my hand
[D]The other one to rub my hea[G]d
[G]Oh, whenever I tell her, "Honey I'm h[Em7]ungry"
[G]Now go and fix me something to ea[Em7]t
[G]This girl rushes in the kitchen and fix[Em7]es me a dinner
[G]With seven different kinds of [Em7]meat
[G]If I call her up at two o'clock in the mor[Em7]ning
[G]And say, "Come on over if you [Em7]can"
[G]Before I hang up the telephone[Cadd9], she's sitting beside me
[D]With a cup of coffee in her h[G]and
