Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

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 marry you anyway 
I'd 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 my love for loneliness 
Save my love for sorrow 
I've given you my onlyness 
Give me you're tomorrow 

If I were a miller 
Pull a mill wheel grinding 
Would you miss your colored blouse 
And your soft shoe shining? 
If you were a miller 
And a mill wheel grinding 
I'd not miss my colored blouse 
And my soft shoe shining 

Save my love for loneliness 
Save my love for sorrow 
I've given you my onlyness 
Give me you're tomorrow 

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

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

Save my love for loneliness 
Save my love for sorrow 
Given you my onlyness 
Give me you're tomorrow 

I've given you my onlyness 
Give me you're tomorrow
