lyrics

Sugar, sugar
Like sugar, sugar

I took binoculars, you took too much
You were banking that I wouldn’t notice
Half a mile in the badlands of red
Mud and sagebrush, cactus

In Painted Canyon buffalo still roam and
Hawks circle high on wind
The hills make mazes and you amaze me like
Richard Brautigan's Watermelon Sugar

So sweet, so sweet

You asked me to marry you with a ring
You had carved and polished, maple burl
I’d been saying yes to you for years
But with my eyes, I only wished you could hear
Now I’ll say it out loud in the land of lost buffalo
Where the hawks circle high on the wind
The hills make mazes and you amaze me like
Richard Brautigan's Watermelon Sugar

Sugar
So sweet

We’ll make a great many things out of watermelon sugar here
The deeds were done and done again as my life is done in watermelon sugar
