careless love

Steve Eulberg
Traditional American Tune


Love, O Love, O careless love! (3x) O look what love has done to me! Once I wore my apron low (3x) You'd follow me thru wind and snow Now my apron strings won't tie (3x) You pass my cabin door right by. You pass my door, you pass my gate (3x) But you won't get by my "38" What O what will Mama say (3x) When I come home the family way? She'll tear her hair, she'll bide her tongue (3x) She did the same when she was young What, O what will Papa say? (3x) He ain't my real pa anyway.
