Sugaree Name Change

Sun Nov 23, 2014, 9:59 AM
Goodbye to my old user name, lol...anyone caring to know it's origin, feel free to learn something useless :)


When they come to take you down
When they bring that wagon round
When they come to call on you
and drag your poor body down

Just one thing I ask of you
Just one thing for me
Please forget you knew my name
My darling Sugaree

Shake it, shake it Sugaree
Just don't tell them that you know me

You thought you was the cool fool
Never could do no wrong
Had everything sewed up tight
How come you lay awake all night long?

Just one thing I ask of you
Just one thing for me
Please forget you knew my name
My darling Sugaree

Shake it, shake it Sugaree
Just don't tell them that you know me

You know in spite of all you gained
you still have to stand out in the pouring rain
One last voice is calling you
and I guess it's time you go

Just one thing I ask of you
Just one thing for me
Please forget you knew my name
My darling Sugaree

Shake it, shake it Sugaree
Just don't tell them that you know me

Shake it up now, Sugaree
I'll meet you at the Jubilee
If that Jubilee don't come
Maybe I'll meet you on the run

One thing I ask of you
Just one thing for me
Please forget you knew my name
my darling Sugaree

Shake it, shake it Sugaree
but don't tell them that you know me
Shake it, shake it Sugaree
Just don't tell 'em that you know me


In ancient Jewish times, Jubilee was held every 49 years, and was a ritualized way of giving everyone a clean slate. The tradition is outlined in the Bible in Leviticus, chapter 25:
And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

The basic tenet of jubilee is that all debts should be forgiven. This included indenture and mortgage of person and property. Thus, the concept was readily embraced by America's slave population, and entered our folklore.

Perhaps the character in "Sugaree" is saying that both of them would need a jubilee in order to freely see each other again; othewise, they will remain on the run for whatever mysterious reason.

This is all so new to me, so my status is -I've not been here in almost 8 months. The good news is you're all here still, at the end, as you were the beginning. The bad news is that you don't know how much I'm touched to my very soul with your love and loyal friendships. Crying again, lol. Gonna get there somehow, I don't know but gonna go further :)
