Johnny Cash - Put The Sugar To Bed lyrics

Out on a shrimp boat I just dropped the net When the wind she come to blowin' whizzin' bad all to get I look south east and golly me what I see A black thundercloud with them fuzzy eyebrows Come a lookin' direct towards boudleaux and me I turned to boudleaux and me I said Put the sugar to bed put the sugar to bed Lock up the coffee in the coffee pot Put the flour in your pillow cause it's all we got Hang the lantern from the ceiling and watch your head Ho boudleaux put the sugar to bed boudleaux put the sugar to bed Well the sky she get dark and then she turn dark black I yell she gonna blow one right out of the almanac A big raindrop smacked me right on the ear And I hollered hey boudleaux but the way the wind blow He just as soon be deaf there wasn't no how to hear I try to call to boudleaux but slid instead Then me and boudleaux put the sugar to bed Well the ends of that shrimpin' boat was switchin' around She turned sideways and inners and outers and upside down The water come in tryin' to drown the both of us The closet top open and the shillet went a flyin' me I hit my head and kinda cuss But most of all I frowned when she calm that I said Put the sugar to bed put the sugar to bed Ain't nothin' dry but my railroad watch the salt got soggy but we still can budge We built a fire for the coffee and we chicory fed Cause me and boudleaux put the sugar to bed Me and boudleaux put the sugar to bed
