If I Was A Carpenter

** "Songbook" Songbook.IfIWasACarpenter -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Tim Hardin, lyrics Leon Russell



Performed: Leon Russell

D C G D
If I was 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 was my trade, would you tinker with me?
D C G D
Would you keep the vows we made, following behind me?
 
D C G D
And if I was Jesus, and I build some crosses
D C G D
Could you see the future, could you stand the losses
D C G D
Of loving a carpenter, and being a lady
D C G D
And taking the chance on me, just to be my baby
 
Bridge
Chorus
C D
Save my love through loneliness,
C D
Save my love through sorrow;
D C
I'll give you my onlyness
G D
If you'll just give me tomorrow
 
D C G D
If I was a rock star, would you be my groupie
D C G D
Would you make sweet love to me, come to California
D C G D
Well I might go crazy, I have to warn you
D C G D
Well I get so mean sometimes, when the spirits on me
 
D C G D
Better think I'm Jesus, out building crosses
D C G D
Could you see the future, could you stand the losses
D C G D
Of loving a carpenter, and being a lady
D C G D
And taking the chance on me, just to be my baby
 
Repeat bridge
Repeat first verse
