Careless Weed

Verse 1

The wind is blowin'
The farmer is sewin' now
And soon you'll be growin'
To seed, yes, and goin'

Chorus

Oh, careless weed
Rise beside the road and sing to me
To be where roads and rivers lead
And livin' without need, careless weed

Verse 2

So grow beneath the bridge
And grow you in the fence row, now
But God help you in the farmer's field 'cause
He will make you weep with his hoedown, now

Chorus

Oh, careless weed
From across the river bed you're callin' me
To be where roads and rivers lead
And lovin' without need, careless weed

Bridge

I'll lean on my hoe and stare instead
Because I know
I ain't really goin' nowhere
Oh, nowhere at no map

Verse 3

The mare, she's foalin'
The tumbleweeds are rollin', now
Movin' down the line
And leavin' tracks to follow and read

Chorus

Oh, careless weed
Stand beyond the hills and call to me
To be where roads and rivers lead
And livin' without need, careless weed
