Sugar Cane

Once I had a little girl
Brought a smile into my world
So sweet she had a name
Called her sugar cane

Sugar cane was natural born
Cajun from the country lord
I swear she was the sweetest thing
I loved that sugar cane

Sugar cane would go to town
And all the men folk turned around
Makin' eyes they'd want to try
To steal her away from me

But I got my knife and I'd hold her hand
So them boys would understand
Don't mess around I mean it man
I love my sugar cane

And then one day she had to leave
And travel far away from me
Lord I was lonesome
Like I'd never been before

And then one night I fell asleep
And dreamed she had come back to me
And when I woke next morning
Yes she's knocking on my door

I said sugar cane
Ya done come back baby
Never gonna leave again
