Sugar Mama (Daddy)
Delbert McClinton / Home Plate 1975

As recorded by Bonnie Raitt on the album Home Plate 1975

Sittin' here worryin'
/                             1
While yer lookin' to find yourself
Somebody else
5                 /
Me lovin' you and wantin' you baby
1                                     /
And you not knowin' what you want yourself
4         /
Why do you treat me so mean
/         /
  Hurt so bad
1                       /
All you wanna do is just sit around and jive
/                        /
You don't even know this woman^Òs alive
Sittin' here worryin'
/                               1
Knowin' yer lookin' to find yourself

5                 /             1    /
Ain't gonna be no sugar mama no more
5                  /                 1      /
You can't have love when yer keepin' score
4                  /
All you pretty boys used to catch my eye
1                      /
I just want a man I can satisfy
5                /              1      /
Ain't gonna be no sugar mama no more

Sittin' here...
All you pretty boys...
                    ...no more
