Careless weed
Glen Campbell 
Written by Jimmy Webb
Live Version

Intro Am

Verse 1
Em               B                 Am         G
The wind is blowin', the farmer is sowin' now
C                  B        C     G    Am  

And soon you'll be going to seed, yes and growing oh, 

Chorus 1

Careless Weed
                         D       G
Rise beside the road and sing to me
            D                C
To be where roads and rivers lead
           D                 G        Em
And living without greed Careless Weed

Verse 2
                    B                          Am
So grow beneath the bridge and grow you in the fence row now 
        C                B                           G        Am          
But God help you in the farmers field 'cause he will make you weep, 

with his hoe-down now,

Chorus 2

     G                             Am           G
Oh, Careless Weed, from across the river bed you’re calling to me
            B                 C
To be where roads and rivers lead
            Am               G        Em
In love and without need Careless Weed

Verse 3

   B         D       C                Am  G     D      Em    C        
I lean on my hoe and stare and stare, because I know I ain't really 
D        G         Em
going nowhere, oh, Nowhere
                              B                            Am          C
And the mare, the mare, she's foalin', the tumbleweeds are rollin' now,
                 B        C       G                     Am   C
Movin' down the line and leavin' tracks for the wind to read

Chorus 3

        G          B      Em    G         Am  G
Oh, Careless Weed, stand beyond the hills and call to me
D                             C
To be where roads and rivers lead
               Am        G
Loving without need careless weed
And living without greed
    D         G    D

Careless Weed

God Bless Glen Travis Campbell
