lyrics

Well I ain't got no use
I ain't got no use for that red rocking chair
Got no sugar baby now
Got no sugar honey baby now

Well I laid her in the shade
I laid her in the shade, gave her every dime I made
What more could a poor boy do
What more could a poor boy do

Some old rounder come along
Some old rounder come along with a mouth full of gold
Rounder stole my greenback roll
Got no sugar honey baby now

Well I've done all I can do
I've done all I can do and I've said all I can say
Send it to your mama next payday
Send it to your mama next payday

Who'll call me honey?
Who'll call me honey and who'll sing that song?
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone?
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone?

Oh I'll call you honey
I'll call you honey and I'll sing that song
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone

Well I ain't got no use
I ain't got no use for that red rocking chair
Got no sugar baby now
I got no sugar honey baby now
