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 through sorrow
I give you my onlyness,
give me your tomorrow

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

If a miller were my trade
I'd a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your color box,
and your soft shoe shining?

Save my love through loneliness,
save my love through sorrow
I give you my onlyness,
give me your tomorrow

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?
Would you have my baby?
