If I Were A Carpenter

Tim Hardin

 DCGD
 If I.. were a carpenter          and you were a lady,
 DCGD
 would you marry me anyway?      Would you have my baby?

 DCGD
 If a tinker were my trade       would you still love me?

 DCGD
 Carrying the pots I made       following behind me.

(Chorus)

 CDGD
Save my love through loneliness,  Save my love for sorrow,

 DCGD
 I'm given you my ownliness,     Come give your tomorrow.
(Verse 2)

 DCGD
 If I worked my hands in wood,    Would you still love me?

 DCGD
 Answer me babe, "Yes I would,     I'll put you above me."

 DCGD
 If I were a miller,      at a mill wheel grinding,
 DCGD
 would you miss your colored blouse,   your soft shoe shining?

(Chorus)

 CDGD
Save my love through loneliness,  Save my love for sorrow,

 DCGD
 I'm given you my ownliness,     Come give your tomorrow.
(Verse 3)

 DCGD
 If I.. were a carpenter          and you were a lady,
 DCGD
 would you marry me anyway?      Would you have my baby?
 DCGD
 would you marry me anyway?      Would you have my baby?
