If I were a carpenter and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby?

If a tinker were my trade, would you still love me?
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me

(Bridge:)
Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow;
I've given you my onliness-
Give me your tomorrows.

If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me
Answer me, babe, yes, I would, I would put you above me

If I were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your colored box, your soft shoes shining?

(Repeat Bridge:)

(Repeat First Verse:)
