Sam Cooke – Sugar Dumpling chords

One of my favourite Sam Cooke songs. This is my interpretation of the song and I play it
with a similar strumming technique to that on Wonderful World, also by Sam Cooke.

I play it with the capo on the 3rd, but that's just because I like singing it at that pitch.

Any suggestions for change are welcomed! Otherwise, enjoy. The song isn't too difficult
and an absolute belter to sing along too.

Intro: G     Em7   X2


G Em7Sugar dumpling, you're my baby
Cadd9 GI love you in every way
Em7Sugar dumpling, you're my baby
Cadd9 GMy love grows stronger everyday, yeah
G Em7Listen, while I tell you a story
G Em7A story about my girl
G Em7I call her sugar dumpling
G Em7Because she's the sweetest thing in this whole world
G Em7Oh, whenever I'm feeling bad
G Em7Right away she puts me to bed
G Cadd9And she hires two nurses, one to hold my hand
D GThe other one to rub my head
G Em7Oh, whenever I tell her, "Honey I'm hungry"
G Em7Now go and fix me something to eat
G Em7This girl rushes in the kitchen and fixes me a dinner
G Em7With seven different kinds of meat
G Em7If I call her up at two o'clock in the morning
G Em7And say, "Come on over if you can"
G Cadd9Before I hang up the telephone, she's sitting beside me
D GWith a cup of coffee in her hand
