Careless Love

[gDGBD tuning]

This song goes wayyyy back, and while not specifically an “Old Time” song it has appeared on recordings by musicians from New Orleans, Chicago, and even the mountains of Kentucky. Oftentimes the lyrics get changed around, swapped, added, or just completely left out. Another example of that “folk process” people like to talk about. Once again, a simple internet search will get you plenty of lyrics.

This arrangement is from the playing of Harry and Jeanie West. The recording I’m referring to is from the now out of print Banjo Songs of the Southern Mountains (which is downloadable HERE.) The Wests have been recording since the late 40’s and currently own and operate an acoustic instrument shop in downtown Statesville, North Carolina.

Don’t forget to check the .mp3 section of this site for audio!
