Songtekst

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Now would you marry me anyway (Would you marry me anyway)
Would you have my baby (Would you have my baby)

If I take on a tinkers trade
Would you still find me
Oh, carryin' the pots I made (Carryin' the pots I made)
Followin' closer behind me (Followin' behind me)

Save my love through loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
Cause I have given you my ownliness
Give me part of your tomorrow

If I work my hands in wood (Yes, I would, babe)
Would you still love me (Don't keep me lonely)
Ah, answer me babe: yes, I would (Yes, I would, babe)
I'd raise you high above me (Don't keep me lonely)

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grindin'
Now would you miss your color box (Would you miss your color box)
And your soft shoes shining (And your soft shoes shining)

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Girl, would you marry me anyway (Would you marry me anyway)
I want you to have my baby (Would you have my baby)

I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Now would you marry me anyway (Would you marry me anyway)
Would you have my baby (Would you have my baby)
