If I Were a Carpenter
Bobby Darin Lyrics


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

If a tinker were my trade
Would you still find me
Carryin' the pots I made
Followin' behind me?
Save my love through loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
I'm given you my oneliness
Come give your tomorrow

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your color box
And your soft shoe shining?

If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me?
Answer me babe, yes I would
I'll put you above me

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

Incredible Talent. I've never heard a better vocalist anywhere, Anytime, Anyplace. A singers singer.
3 minutes of magic right here. Look up The Best in the dictionary and there's a picture of Bobby Darin.

Totally in agreement with you! I send the song to my ex wife hoping she Will love me again....

@Jermaine Foster John Holt sang this in 1989. Tim Hardin, the author, sang it in 1967 on an album and again in 1969 at Woodstock, but Bobby Darin recorded it in 1966, even before Tim Hardin.
