If I Were A Carpenter.
Tim Hardin.
Album: Tim Hardin 2 (1967)

Intro: D G C G D - G C G D
D           C6        G               D
If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady,
D                  C     G                   D
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby,
D                G                         D
If a tinker were my trade, would you still find me,
D            C          G           A*     D
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me,

C                D       Em7     C6       D
Save my love for sorrow, save my love for lonely,
D                 C        G        D7
I've given you my tomorrow, love me only.

D                       C   G D
If I worked my hands in wood, would you still love me,
D                         Fmaj7     Gm          D
You answer me quick, "Tim, I could, I'd put you above me"
D         C     G                 D
If were a miller, at a mill wheel grinding,
D                           C      G                D
Would you miss your colored blouse, your soft shoes shining.

C                D                   C6   G*  D
Save my love for loneliness, save my love for sorrow,
D                 C6      G6             D7
I've given you my onlyness, give me your tomorrow.

D           C         G    D
If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady,
D                  C6    G               Em7 D   C G D C6 D
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby.

(The A* & G* are probably just notes. 
He also changes from D to D7 sometimes.)
