The House Carpenter
We'll met we'll met said an old true love We'll met we'll met said he I'm just returning from the salt salt sea And it's all for the love of thee Climb in climb in my old true love And have a seat with me It's been three-fourths of a long long year Since together we have been Well I can't come in or I can't sit down For I haven't but a moment's time They say you're married to a house carpenter And your heart will never be mine Now it's I coulda married a king's daughter here I'm sure she'da married me But I've forsaken her crowns of gold And it's all for the love of thee Now will you forsaken your house carpenter And go along with me I'll take you where the grass grows green On the banks of the deep blue sea She picked up here little babe And kisses gave him three Says stay right here my darling little babe And keep your pappa company Well they hadn't been on ship but about two weeks I'm sure it wasn't three Well his true love began to weep and mourn And he weeped most bitterly Says are you a-weepin' for my silver or my gold Says are you weeping for my store Are you weeping for that house carpenter Whose face you'll never see any more No it's I'm not a-weepin' for your silver or your gold Or neither for your store I am weeping for my darling little babe Whose face I'll never see any more Well they hadn't been on ship but about three weeks I'm sure it wasn't four 'Til they sprung a leak in the bottom of the ship And they sunk for to rise no more
