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 made,
Following behind you.
Save your love through loneliness,
Save your love through sorrow,
I gave you my onlyness,
