If I Were A Carpenter

** "Songbook" Songbook.IfIWereACarpenter -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Tim Hardin, 1966[1]

Performed: Bobby Darin

D C C/B Am Am7/G D
If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby?
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
If a tinker were my trade, would you still love me?
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me
Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow;
D C C/B Am
I gave you my onliness
Am/G D
Give me all your tomorrows
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
Answer me, babe, yes, I would, I would put you above me
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
If I were a miller, at a mill wheel grinding
D C C/B Am Am7/G D
Would you miss your coloured box, your soft shoes shining?
Repeat bridge
Repeat first verse
