If I Were A Carpenter

(With June Carter Cash)

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 carrying the pots you've made
Following behind you

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onliness
Give me your tomorrow

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your color blouse
And your soft shoe shining?

If you were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding
I'd not miss my color blouse
And my soft shoe shining

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onliness
Give me your tomorrow

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

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

Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
I gave you my onliness
Give me your tomorrow
