if i were a carpenter lyrics – hank williams jr.

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 onliness give me your tomorrow

if i were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
would you miss your colored blouse and your soft shoe shining
if you were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
i’d not miss my colored blouse and my soft shoe shining
save your love through loneliness…

if i worked my hands in wood would you still love me
i’d answer you yes i would and would you not be above me
if i were a carpenter and you were a lady i’d marry you anyway i’d have your baby
save your love through loneliness…
