The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Careless Love

Love, oh 5 love, oh careless 1 love
Love, oh love, oh careless 5 love
1 Love, oh love, oh 4 careless love
You 1 see what 5 love has done to 1 me

Sorrow, sorrow to my heart,... (×3)
When my true love and I did part

Once I wore my apron low,... (×3)
You'd follow me through rain or snow

Now I wear my apron high,... (×3)
You see my door and pass it by

Cried last night and the night before,... (×3)
I'll cry tonight and cry no more
