REFRAIN: Oh, love, oh love, oh careless love
Oh, love, oh love, oh careless love, Lord, Lord
Love, oh love, oh careless love
You see what careless love has done

Oh, when my money you could blow
Oh, when my money you could blow, Lord, Lord
When my money you could blow
You was always hangin' around my door

I wish to the Lord that train would run
I wish to the Lord that train would run, Lord, Lord
I wish to the Lord that train would run
To carry me back to where I came from

Oh, now my money's all spent and gone
Oh, now my money's all spent and gone, Lord, Lord
On, now my money's all spent and gone
You pass my door and sing a song

I wish to the Lord that train would run
I wish to the Lord that train would run, Lord, Lord
I wish to the Lord that train would run
To carry me back to where I came from

Oh Mama, Mama, yonder he goes
Oh Mama, Mama, yonder he goes, Lord, Lord
Mama, oh Mama, yonder he goes
With a brand new hat, a suit of clothes

Go place this ring upon his hand
Go place this ring upon his hand, Lord, Lord
Go place this ring upon his hand
To show to the world he's a married man

Go take this ring and put it on
Go take this ring and put it on, Lord Lord
Go take this ring and put it on
And think of me, oh when I'm gone

If I had to listened to what Mama said
If I had listened to what Mama said, Lord, Lord
If I had listened to what Mama said
I'd been at home in Mama's bed

REFRAIN: Oh, love, oh love, oh careless love
Oh, love, oh love, oh love, oh Lord, Lord, Lord
Love, oh love, oh careless love
You see what careless love has done

SOLO

You can pass my door, you can pass my gate
You can pass my door, you can pass my gate, Lord, Lord
You can pass my door, you can pass my gate
But you sure can't pass a .38

REFRAIN: Oh, love, oh love, oh careless love
Oh, love, oh love, oh love, oh Lord, Lord, Lord
Love, oh love, oh careless love
You see what careless love has done

Oh, when I die, don't bury me deep
Oh, when I die, don't bury me deep, Lord, Lord
When I die, don't bury me deep
Place a marble rock, my head and feet

Upon my breast place a lily-white dove
Upon my breast put a lily-white dove, Lord, Lord
Upon my breast place a lily-white dove
For to show the world that I died for love

REFRAIN: Oh, love, oh love, oh careless love
Oh, love, oh love, oh love, oh Lord, Lord, Lord
Love, oh love, oh careless love
You see what careless love has done
