It's been a long time since I've been down,
in or anywhere near Sugar Town.
But once upon a time I lived there too.
I used to love my baby back then just for something to do.
She had to go, she could not stay.
I do not know, I guess I drove her away.
Now I live up here where the cold winds moan.
Sugar Town ain't know place for a poor-boy who's all alone..
Sugar Town, Sugar Town
It's been a long time since I've been down
Sugar Town, Sugar Town.
Sweetest life I've ever known was Sugar Town
Now some say I froze in the winter last year
The good Lord knows it's cold up here
But I'm still alive, I'm doing okay
Sugar Town left this taste in my mouth that won't go away.
