IF I WERE A CARPENTER

PERFORMED BY DEREK MOMENT & MOMENT7
WRITTEN BY TIM HARDIN

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

If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me?
Give the answer babe yes I would
Hold you far above me

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

A tinker was my trade
Would you still love me?
Carrying the pots I made
Follow closer behind me

Save my love through loneliness
Save my love through sorrow
Giving you my 'oneliness'
Give me your tomorrow

(solo)

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

A tinker was my trade
Would you still love me?
Carrying the pots I made
Follow closer behind me

Save my love through loneliness
Save my love through sorrow
Giving you my 'oneliness'
Give me your tomorrow

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