If I Were A Carpenter  Tim Hardin

[D]If I.. were a ca[C]rpenter    [G]      and you were a la[D]dy,
[D]would you marry me a[C]nyway?   [G]   Would you have my b[D]aby?

[D]If a tinker w[C]ere my trade   [G]    would you still l[D]ove me?

[D]Carrying the p[C]ots I made   [G]    following be[D]hind me.
(Chorus)

S[C]ave my love through lo[D]neliness,  S[G]ave my love for s[D]orrow,

[D]I'm given you my o[C]wnliness, [G]    Come give your to[D]morrow.
(Verse 2)

[D]If I worked my h[C]ands in wood,  [G]  Would you still lo[D]ve me?

[D]Answer me babe, "Y[C]es I would, [G]    I'll put you ab[D]ove me."
[D]If I were a m[C]iller,  [G]    at a mill wheel g[D]rinding,
[D]would you miss your c[C]olored box,[G]   your soft shoe s[D]hining?


(Chorus)

S[C]ave my love through lo[D]neliness,  S[G]ave my love for s[D]orrow,

[D]I'm given you my o[C]wnliness, [G]    Come give your to[D]morrow.
(Verse 3)

[D]If I.. were a ca[C]rpenter    [G]      and you were a la[D]dy,
[D]would you marry me a[C]nyway?   [G]   Would you have my b[D]aby?
[D]would you marry me a[C]nyway?   [G]   Would you have my b[D]aby?
