[Verse 1]
D           C         G                  D
If I were a carpenter   and you were a lady
D                  C       G                   D
Would you marry me anyway?   Would you have my baby?
D           C             G                 D
If a tinker were my trade   would you still find me?
D            C            G             D
Carrying the pots I made,   following behind me

[Chorus]
C                D           C                  D
Save my love for loneliness,   save my love for sorrow
D                C        G              D      
I'll give you my onliness,  give me your tomorrow

[Verse]
D              C              G                      D
If I worked my hands in wood    would you still love me?
D                C            G                    D
Answer me babe, "Yes, I would,   and I'll put you above me"

D           C      G                     D
If I were a miller   at a mill wheel grinding
D                   C              G                      D
Would you miss your colored blouse    and your soft shoes shining
