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 tinker's trade
Would you still find me
Oh, carrin' the pots I made (carrying the pots I made)
Close up behind me? (following behind me)

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

If I worked my hands in wood (yes I would, babe, to keep your love, babe)
Would you still love me?
Now answer me babe, "yes, I would (yes I would, babe, to keep your love, babe)
Place you high above me"

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding
Now, would you miss your color box (would you miss your color box?)
Your soft shoes are shining (and your soft shoe shining?)

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