G -        G+ C -
G D7 G -   (D7 repeat)
8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Love, oh love, oh careless love.
Love, oh love, oh careless love,
My love was one, To kiss and run,
Oh you see what careless love has done.
I was happy as can be.
Days were sunny and so free,
You came along, You done me wrong,
When you brought your careless love to me.

You, you fooled me from the start.
You upset my apple cart,
I'm sad, I'm blue, and thanks to you,
Careless love done went and broke my heart.

Listen to Homer and the Barstormers (Buck Trent banjo) perform "Careless Love" (mp3)
