#SLS ~ 9/25/22

Today the prompts are Sweet, Honey, Sugar, Candy, Chocolate suggested by Angie of King Ben’s Grandma. Thanks JIM for hosting. Some many choices, where to begin? Guess I’ll while away the hours listening and dancing until something grabs me. As I strolled down memory lane, I was going to use Sugar/Sugar sung by the Archies but pretty sure I posted that song before. Reminds me of my brother since we had the 45. We shared our records and would take turns picking what got played. Sugar/Sugar was one of his top selections. Sticking with the era, I finally chose Sweet City Woman by the Stampeders. Songwriter: Richard Dodson. Hope you enjoy!

Well, I’m on my way
To the city lights
To the pretty face
That shines her light on the city nights
And I gotta catch a noon train
I gotta be there on time
Oh, it feels so good to know she waits at the end of the line

Sweet, sweet city woman
I can see your face, I can hear your voice
I can almost touch you
Sweet, sweet city woman
And the banjo and me, we got a feel for singing, yeah, yeah

Bon, c’est bon, bon, bon, c’est bon, bon
Bon, c’est bon, bon, bon, bon, bon
Bon, c’est bon, bon, bon, c’est bon, bon
Bon, c’est bon, bon, bon, bon, bon

So long, ma
So long, pa
So long, neighbors and friends

Like a country morning
All snuggled in dew
Ah, she’s got a way to make a man feel shiny and new
And she sing in the evening
Old, familiar tunes
And she feeds me love and tenderness and macaroons

Sweet, sweet city woman
I can see your face, I can hear your voice
I can almost touch you
Sweet, sweet city woman
And the banjo and me, we got a feel for singing

Sweet, sweet city woman
Oh she’s my sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet city woman
oh my sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Everybody
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet city woman
