Shake The Sugar Tree
Pam Tillis Lyrics


Love you're gettin' lazy
You're forgettin' to give me
Sweet sugar words that I want to hear
You've been neglectin' me
You know jealousy, it is bitter as a green spring berry

You're like fruit from a fickle vine
You turn sweet in the nick of time
Love, you only come alive when you're losin' me
And it's a childish game
I've got to shake you up just to wake you up
To make you love me

I'll shake the sugar tree
Till I feel your love falling
All around me
You've got to tend to what you've planted
And if you take my love for granted baby
I'll shake the sugar tree

Another night and you're sleepin'
I'm awake and I'm dreamin'
Oh honey 'bout the way you used to be
A little time's gone by
Now do you think that I'm content
With the cookin' and the payin' of the rent
No, I want to know if your love's all spent

I'll shake the sugar tree
Till I feel your love falling
All around me
You've got to tend to what you've planted
And if you take my love for granted baby
I'll shake the sugar tree

I've got to raise some commotion
Before you show me
Some real emotion

So Jesus right , My eyes , they remember every thing I think , my ears hear everything willing or not right , You see , Honestly I believe that they might think , That you going out , or lets say The time , that they must make there choice , I said to You before , that the thing is how long We going to wonder this time We have almost wondered off the planet looking at the stars that You put there to Abraham and I smile cause You see Jesus Himself is the Great teacher , As I weep at Jesus Feet that not one thing on earth will do as You see Jesus as stand there looking at You Yeah You Jesus for all the Lost , that You will Gather . KI smile even bigger cause I know that my God is bigger than any Problem that fo9ols put in my way ,m for You King Jesus I will do anything and look at Your creations Mind Run wild fix it please Jesus as I know that my madness is caused by You , if you pray for the Holy Man [pray God Will protect the ones needing it .

Its like , The righteousness of Jesus Father God got a Problem , the thing is , yeah , there talking about make , do you see why The Savior , My on ly Begotten sons , hey He cleaned up , Jesus that couldn't be I pray they have already , saying that if , and why You didn't give me a Plan , I said that was You plan , never verve from His Coarse , His every step was to educate ? Or bring us to knowing , the Jews that didn't recognize , My plan , I n

I love 90s country music and this is one of Pam's best songs along with Maybe It Was Memphis.

@NBK Outlaw This is a GREAT song for karaoke.

@Brad Lennon Yes it is! It's impossible not to love Pam's music!

Mi Vida Loca is good too

Facts I'd marry her and act right just so she could sing to me.

Robert C

This song has been at the top of my playlist for nearly 30 years

Elmer Fudd

Oh the memories this song brings to mind. My wife called the radio station back in the 90s she requested & dedicated this song to me. Happy to report we are STILL together today. She has shaken the tree a few times since but each time a hand full of rotten apples keep tumbling down. I don't know why she expects a different result each time! 🤠

The Chosen Nerd

Her voice is beautiful just as pretty as Dolly's but with its own unique sound.

My grandpa danced me around the room since I was born with this song and he's gone now rip

Laura K. Payne

He’s still dancing and waiting on you to join him when it’s your time. 😘
