If I Were A Carpenter

Lyrics written by: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
If I were a carpenter and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway
Would you have my baby

June Carter:
If you were a carpenter and I were a lady
I’d marry you anyway
I’d have your baby

Johnny: If a tinker was my trade
Would I still find you
June: I’d be carrying the pots you made
Following behind you

Both: Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
Johnny: I gave you my onlyness
Both: Give me your tomorrow

Johnny:
If I were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your colored blouse
And your soft shoes shining

June:
If you were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
I’d not miss my colored blouse
And my soft shoes shining

Both: Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
Johnny: I gave you my onlyness
Both: Give me your tomorrow

Johnny: If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me
June: I’d answer you yes I would
Johnny: And would you not be above me

Johnny:
If I were a carpenter and you were a lady

June:
I’d marry you anyway
I’d have your baby

Both: Save your love through loneliness
Save your love through sorrow
Johnny: I gave you my onlyness
Both: Give me your tomorrow
