SUGAR by Heather Nova
Acoustic part
* Dm * Em/D x2 E------1-----3-----+------3-----5-----+ B-------------------+--------------------+ G---2---2-------2-+---4---4-------4-+ D-0-------0---0---+-0-------0---0---+ A-------------------+--------------------+ E-------------------+--------------------+ Em/D : XX0453 On the Vermont Transit Bus I leaned my arm into a little chink of sun, going somewhere older than I was, strapped into something tight, keeping me small. I dug into you like rock climbing ; too scared of going up, too scared of coming down, too scared of rockface. I should've split my sides or spilled my guts or hit you or something, but I was good. And your father's little pancakes so round and perfect and me sitting up too straight, laughing in wrong places, kissing you, kissing up, kissing too soon... (Chords. Let them ring : ) Dm G Dm G When the cock crows Dm G Dm G When the morning comes where will I go ? Dm G Dm G When the cock crows Dm G Dm G When the move is gone where will I go ?
Electric part

And I felt the lie - something sticky on the inside ; a bitter wind in my throat, stopping me wanting, in my stomach, in my head and you said Dm Sugar, sugar, you couldn't come, come Sugar, sugar, without your mother, mother Sugar, sugar, you couldn't taste it Sugar, sugar, in my throat. (Let the chords ring : ) When the cock crows When the morning comes where will I go ? When the cock crows When the love is gone where will I go ? Dsus2 E------------0------+ x4 B------3-------3----+ G---2---2--------2-+ D-0-------0--------+ (Chords : ) D5 Dsus2 x4 D Sugar, sugar, you couldn't come, come Sugar, sugar, without your mother, mother Sugar, sugar, you couldn't taste it Sugar, sugar, in my throat Dm You couldn't, you couldn't, you couldn't taste it, You couldn't, you couldn't, you couldn't taste it When the cock crows When the morning comes where will I go ? When the cock crows When the love is gone where will I go ?
