Been away from the Mudcat for awhile and there doesn't seem to be much Bluegrass on the threads these days, but this song is in my head and I need some help.
" Sugar Babe, what's the matter with you?, You don't love me like you used to do......... ". That's all I remember. I always thought it was on a Doc Watson album called, "Doc and the Boys", but just found that album and it isn't there.
Need the lyrics, remember the tune, who wrote it, etc.
I know somebody on the 'Cat knows.

Sugar babe what's the matter with you?
It ain't your honey but the way you do ...

All I want my sugar to do
Make five dollars and give me two ...

Went down town and bought me a rope
Whipped my baby till she buzzard-loped ...

Went down town and bought me a line
Whipped my baby till she changed her mind ...

(jeez, this song is getting violent!)

There may be another verse or two. Is there a version of this that _doesn't_ derive from Mance Lipscomb's first Arhoolie LP?

I don't think Doc Watson was singing THAT version.

Gove Schrivenor(?) does it good ...

Cheers!
R-J

version that comes to my mind is like :

Sugar Babe, what's the matter with you
You don't love me like you used to do
SB, it's all over now ...

Gonna go down town, gonna get me a line
Wup that woman til she says she's mine
SB, it's all over now ...

All I want my sugar to do
Is make $5 and give me two
SB, it's all over now ...
