If I Were A Carpenter Lyrics

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

If you were a carpenter
And I were a lady
I'd you marry you anyway
I'd you have your baby

If a tinker was my trade
Would I still find you?
I'd be carryin' the pots you made
Followin' behind you

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onlyness
Gimme your tomorrow

If I were a miller
And a mill wheel grindin'
Would you miss your colored blouse
And your soft shoe shinin'?

If you were a miller
At a mill wheel grindin'
I'd not miss my colored blouse
And my soft shoe shinin'?

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onlyness
Gimme your tomorrow

If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me?
I'd answer you, "Yes I would"
And would you not be above me?

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
I'd you marry you anyway
I'd have your baby

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onlyness
Gimme your tomorrow
