Shake Sugaree Chords
Mary Lou Lord and Elliott Smith - Shake Sugaree

Cover of a traditional folk song by Elizabeth Cotton. Featuring Elliott Smith on guitar
and the vocals of Mary Lou Lord.NOTE: This is a very simplified version of the track as
Elliott is master of finger picking and its hard to follow - this version is nice and easy.

G	G7	C	C7	G	D	G	D	G

This is how it all fits together.

G				  	      G7
Have a little secret and I, ain't going to tell,
I'm going to heaven, In a ground pea shell
	  C7		G
Oh Lordy me, didn't I shake sugaree
     D			     G
Everything I got down in pawn.

About the artist behind Shake Sugaree Chords:

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery"[1] and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest.[2] The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.[3] At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, From a Basement on the Hill, which was released posthumously on October 19, 2004.
