If I Were a Carpenter
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 for sorrow
Save my love for lonely
I've given you my tomorrow
Love me only

If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me
You answer me quick, "Tim, I could
I'd put you above me"

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

Save my love for loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
I've given you my only-ness
Give me your tomorrow

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