Subject: RE: Tab. needed for 'Shake Sugaree' please!
Yes, the Grateful Dead's Sugaree is a totally different song. Lyrics were by Robert Hunter and music by Jerry Garcia. I do think Shake Sugaree inspired the Grateful Dead's Sugaree as evidenced by the chorus:

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