Verse:
Have you heard these blues that I'm going to sing to you?
When you hear them, they will thrill you thru and thru.
They're the sweet -est blues you ev -er heard. Now lis -ten, and don't say a word.
 
Chorus:
Su -gar Blues, ev -'ry -bo -dy's sing -ing the Su -gar Blues. The whole town is ring -ing.
My lov -in man's sweet as he can be, but the dog -gone fool turned so -ur on me.
I'm so un -hap -py, I feel so bad, I could lay me down and die.
You can say what you choose but I'm all con -fused, I've got the sweet, sweet, Su -gar Blues, more su -gar,
I've got the sweet, sweet Su -gar Blues.
