Lyrics

SWEET SUGAR SUNDAY
Sweet bread baking in the iron stove
Kids out playing in the maple grove
Mama worked and waited for the day to end
So she could dance with him again

Strong arms working in the golden fields
Sun burned kisses by the old grist mill
When the sun went down, he’d have his fill
And dance with her again

I learned about love by watching them move
I stole my rhythm from a down home groove

Sweet Sugar Sunday in mountain time
Let’s lose our cares in a bottle of wine
When the sun decides to ask the moon to shine
Will you dance with me again?
Oh sweet sugar sunday our love is true
No one moves me the way you do
When the stars are smiling at the fireflies
Will you dance with me again?

Mama and Daddy had the kind of rhyme
That kept them thinking ‘bout supper time
Anticipating that happy rush
When their tired hands could touch

Every Sunday night in our backyard
Porch boards singin’ underneath the stars
A green grass stage by an orange moon
I watched ‘em dancing from my room

I learned about love by watching them move
I stole my rhythm from a down home groove

Sweet sugar sunday in mountain time
Let’s lose our cares in a bottle of wine
When the sun decides to ask the moon to shine
Will you dance with me again?
Oh sweet sugar sunday our love is true
No one moves me the way you do
When the stars are smiling at the fireflies
Will you dance with me again?
When the stars are smiling at the fireflies
Will you dance with me again?
