Careless Love [traditional]




love, love, careless love
love, love, careless love
you see what love has done for me
sorrow, sorrow to my heart
sorrow, sorrow to my heart
for tomorrow we shall be so far apart

now my body is spent and gone
out on the hours downtown
see what love has done for me

it's a shame we ever kissed
on your father's porch we first kissed
such a good time that i can't forget
i cry myself to sleep
and as i cried the night before
well i'll cry tonight
and i'll cry no more
ain't it enough
to break your heart
you swear that you're dying
too far apart

see what love has done for me
you see what love has done for me
it's gone and broke this heart of mine
and one day it will break yours sometime

Zwan's interpretation of an early blues song that has been recorded or performed numerous times, by such artists as Lonnie Johnson, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Prince Billy, Fats Domino, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, Connie Francis, Joan Baez, Leadbelly, the list goes on. The traditional song has no definitive set of lyrics, but the opening lines, the theme, and the structure are preserved by... most artists.
