Sheryl Crow & Willie Nelson – If I Were A Carpenter lyrics

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 carryin’ the pots you made
Followin’ behind you

Save my love for loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
I’ve given you my onlyness
Give me you're tomorrow

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

If you were a miller
And a mill wheel grinding
I'd not miss my colored blouse
And my soft shoe shining

Save my love for loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
I’ve given you my onlyness
Give me you're tomorrow

If worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me?
I'd answer you, yes, I would
And would you not be above me?

And if I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
I'd marry you anyway
I'd have your baby

Save my love for loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
Given you my onlyness
Give me you're tomorrow

I've given you my onlyness
Give me you're tomorrow
