Don't Be Careless Love  Paul McCartney

"Don't Be Careless Love" (Capo: 5th. fret)
____Verse: 1
[A]Burn the [E]midnight l[A]amp down un[D/E]til the d[A7]awn
[Bm]I'll keep watch un[F#7]til I'm sure you're coming h[Bm]ome [Esus] [E]
[A]Shadows play and [E]flicker on the bedroom w[A]all
They [A7]turn into a bad dream [Bm]overnight
[F#7]Something could be terribly wr[Bm]ong
____Chorus: 1
[E]Don't be careless [G#m]love
be [G]careless [F#m]love
[C#m]Don't be, don't be careless [G#m]love
In my dream you're running nowhere[G]
Every step you've taken turns to gl[F#m]ue
Walking down a spiral [C#m]staircase
Falling through, falling through
[D]Don't be [G]careless l[D]ove, be [C]careless [Bm]love[E]
____Verse: 2
The [A]lamp burns [E]down and o[A]ut
I'm getting pretty [D/E]tired of th[A7]is
I f[Bm]eel so bad, [F#7]something might be going am[Bm]iss [Esus] [E]
I [A]won't be there, so [E]look out for yours[A]elf
You're [A7]getting in deep whate[Bm]__ver you do
Don't [F#7]let me go back to sl[Bm]eep
____Chorus: 2
[E]Don't be careless [G#m]love
be [G]careless [F#m]love
[C#m]Don't be, don't be careless [G#m]love
Saw your face in the morning paper[G]
Saw your body rolled up in a r[F#m]ug
Chopped up into two little pieces [C#m]by some thug
[D]Don't be [G]careless l[D]ove, be [C]careless [Bm]love[E]
____Verse: 3
But [A]in the [E]morning li[A]ght, when I wake [D/E]up ag[A7]ain
You're [Bm]by my side and [F#7]that's the way it's always b[Bm]een [Esus] [E]
But [A]in the dark your [E]mind plays funny tricks on y[A]ou
Your [E]mind plays funny tricks on y[A]ou
Your [E]mind plays funny tricks on y[G#m]ou
be [G]careless [F#m]love[F] [Dm] [A]
