Fair and Tender Ladies
Recorded by the Carter Sisters
Written by Maybelle Carter

Come all ye fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court your men
Dm C
They're like a star on a summer morning
Dm C
They first appear and then they're gone

They'll tell to you some loving story
And they make you think that they love you well
Dm C
Then away they'll go and court some other
Dm C
And leave you there in grief to dwell

I wish I was on some tall mountain
Where the ivy rock is black as ink
Dm C
I’d write a letter to my false true lover
Dm C
Whose cheeks are like the morning pink

Oh love is handsome love is charming
And love is pretty while it's new
Dm C
But love grows cold as love grows older
Dm C
And fades away like morning dew

Dm C
And fades away like morning dew
