Fair And Tender Ladies

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters:
Come all you fair and tender ladies
Take warning how you court young men
They’re like a star on a summer morning
They first appear and then they’re gone

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

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

June:
Oh, love is handsome, love is charming
And love is pretty while it’s new
but love grows cold, as love grows older
And fades away like morning dew

Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters:
And fades away like morning dew
