Tim Hardin – If I Were A Carpenter lyrics

You answer me quick, “Tim, I could. If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway? Save my love for sorrow, save my love for lonely. I gave you my onlyness, give me your tomorrow. Would you have my baby? If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me? Save my love for loneliness, save my love for sorrow. If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway? I given you my tomorrow, love me only. I’ll put you above me.”
If I were a miller, at a mill wheel grinding,
Would you miss your coloured blouse, your soft shoes shining? If a tinker were my trade, would you still find me,
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me? Would you have my baby?
