If I Were a Carpenter

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Written by Tim Harden in 1967. Many singers have covered it, including Bobby Darin.

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway
Would you have my baby


If a tinker were my trade
Would you still find me
Carrying the pots I'd made
Following behind me


Save my love through loneliness
Save my love for sorrows
I've given you my onliness
Come give me your tomorrows



If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me
Answer me babe say "yes I would
I'll put you above me"


If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your colored blouse
Your soft shoe shining


If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway
Would you have my baby


Would you marry me anyway
And have my babyyyyyyyyyyyyy
