Beware, Oh Take Care (Blind Alfred Blake) They say young men are bold and free Beware, Oh take care. They'll tell you they're friends, but they're false, you see Beware, Oh take care. cho: Beware, young ladies, they're fooling you, Trust them not, they're fooling you! Beware, young ladies, they're fooling you, Beware, Oh take care. Around their necks they wear a guard And in their pocket a deck of cards. They smoke, they chew, they wear fine shoes And in their pocket is a bottle of booze. They hold their hands up to their hearts They sigh, Oh they sigh, They say they love no one but you They lie, Oh they lie. Recorded by New Lost City Ramblers RG
