​If I Were A Carpenter

This song is by Luka Bloom and appears on the album Keeper of the Flame (2000).

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 made,
Following behind me.

Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love trough sorrow,
I'm given you my loneliness,
Come and give me your tomorrow.

If I worked my hands in wood,
Would you still love me?
Answer me babe, "Yes I would,
I'll put you above me."

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding,
Would you miss your color box,
Your soft shoe shining?

Oh Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm given you my Loneliness,
Come and give me your tomorrow

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 made,
Following behind me
Oh Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm given you my onliness,
Come and give me your tomorrow
I'm given you my Loneliness,
Come and give me your tomorrow
I'm given you my Lonliness,
Come and give me your tomorrow
