Sugar - Ernest

At a little canteen south of the border
Bartender messed up an order
She got my Jose, I got her wine, I said, "I'll buy 'em both this time"
If you dance with me in this blue moonlight and that turned into the rest of the night
Like shells in the waves, she swept me away and for a minute we had it made
Sunrise came way too fast
She had a stateside plane to catch
And I still don't know where those silver wings took her

But her name was Sugar, she taste so sweet
In with the tide and out with the breeze
Kinda high makes you weak in the knees
Right down to your soul
She's a damn good looker
With the bleach blonde hair and those ocean eyes could be anywhere
But it's lookin' like I'll never know
Mm, and that memory still comes and goes
Oh, her name was Sugar (So sweet)

By the end of the night my phone had died
She either wrote it down wrong or straight up lied
Either way that was our first and only time
And I wonder where she went back home to
Is she with someone or all alone too?
All I got to go on's this one clue

Her name was Sugar, she taste so sweet
In with the tide and out with the breeze
Kinda high makes you weak in the knees
Right down to your soul
She's a damn good looker
With the bleach blonde hair and those ocean eyes could be anywhere
But it's lookin' like I'll never know
Mm, and that memory still comes and goes
Oh, her name was Sugar (So sweet, so sweet)

Maybe I'll fly back for the hell of it
Find that barstool and just settle in
That red one right there at the end
Get drunk and pray she walks in again
Sugar, sweet like it sounds
Salt Life T-shirt laying on the ground
I ain't forgot that pink flamingo tattoo way on down

She's a damn good looker
With the bleach blonde hair and those ocean eyes could be anywhere
But it's lookin' like I'll never know
Mm, and that memory still comes and goes
Oh, her name was Sugar (So sweet)
Her name was Sugar (So sweet)

Yeah, yeah
Her name was Sugar
