Here are the Lyrics.

Sugar Baby

Oh I’ve got no sugar baby now

All I can do is to seek peace with you

And I can’t get along this a-way

Can’t get along this a-way

All I can do, I’ve said all I can say

I’ll send it to your mama next payday

Send you to your mama next payday.

I got no use for the red rockin’ chair,

I’ve got no honey baby now

Got no sugar baby now

Who’ll rock the cradle, who’ll sing the song

Who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone

Who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone?

I’ll rock the cradle, I’ll sing the song

I’ll rock the cradle when you gone.

It’s all I can do

It’s all I can say,

I will send you to your mama next payday

Laid her in the shade, give her every dime I made

What more could a poor boy do

What more could a poor boy do?

Oh I’ve got no honey baby now

Got no sugar baby now

Said all I can say, I’ve done all I can do

And I can’t make a living with you

Can’t make a living with you

Lyrics are from McGuinn’s Folk Den.
