Sugar Mag

by Grateful Dead

Sugar magnolia, blossoms blooming
Heads all empty and I don't care
Saw my baby down by the river
Knew she'd have to come up soon for air

Sweet blossom come on, under the willow
We can have high times if you'll abide
We can discover the wonders of nature
Rolling in the rushes down by the riverside

She's got everything delightful
She's got everything I need
Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double
Pays my ticket when I speed

She comes skimmin' through rays of violet
She can wade in a drop of dew
She don't come and I don't follow
Waits backstage while I sing to you

Well, she can dance a Cajun rhythm
Jump like a Willys in four wheel drive
She's a summer love for spring, fall and winter
She can make happy any man alive

Sugar magnolia, ringing that bluebell
Caught up in sunlight, come on out singing
I'll walk you in the sunshine
Come on honey, come along with me

She's got everything delightful
She's got everything I need
A breeze in the pines and the sun and bright moonlight
Lazing in the sunshine, yes indeed

Sometimes when the cuckoo's crying
When the moon is half way down
Sometimes when the night is dying
I take me out and I wander around, I wander 'round

Sunshine, daydream, walking in the tall trees
Going where the wind goes
Blooming like a red rose
Breathing more freely

Ride our singin'
I'll walk you in the morning sunshine
Sunshine, daydream, sunshine, daydream
Walking in the sunshine

On Sugar Mag by Grateful Dead

Was it the song you were looking for? No

I have been looking for an allusive song since the mid 80's . The chorus goes ...Sugarman gonna love you , sugarman will make you high , and the sweet love will be flowing by the dying candle light , he's coming back to you to make sweet love tonight . `ALSO ...Take off that white dress trimmed in lace , take all that makeup off your face , cause you know what sugarman wants you to do ..........These are a few of the lines its a male singer , ballad style , slow very pretty song .

    I have been looking for over 30 years for this song , it was played on the radio in `British Columbia Canada around 1985 to 1987 era .
