Sugar in the Gourd

Key of D. There are lots of versions. 
  • The old time version [Utoob] by Paul Brown, Adam Hurt, etc.
  • Rhys Jones [SugarInTheGourd mp3 from the CD "Mississippi Square Dance"]. This is an inspired rhythmic version that originates from Nile Wilson on Bucklin, Missouri, according to the CD insert.
  • Old 78 recording of the Tweedy Brothers [Utoob] mixes other tunes
  • Old LP recording by Tommy Jackson [Utoob]
  • The fast bluegrass version [Utoob] by Steve Day
  • The Holy Modal Rounders did a nice version but the video is annoying [utoob
Lyrics:
Sugar in the Gourd, and I can't get it out.
Only way to get it out, is to shake the Gourd about.
