I'm looking for tabs for T. Hardin's "If I were a carpenter" Anyone? And if anyone knows Ramblin Jack's way of playing it I'll be so thankful!

One version: "If I were a carpenter, and you were a lady" - this line is D,C,G,D as is each one of the rest of the verse lines, "Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby?" (D,C,G,D). When you get to "Save my love for loneliness, Save my love for sorrow," those are D,C (first phrase), D, C (Second), and the last line: "I've given you my onliness, come give me your tomorrw" goes back to D,C,G,D. It is obvious where the changes are when you play.

yours, Peter T.

Tim Hardin - The Homecoming Concert Recorded live on January 17th, 1980

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
Carrying the pots I made, following behind me?

If I work my hands in wood would you still love me?
If you answer quickly Tim I could, I’ll put you above me

Save my love for loneliness, save my love for sorrow
I’ve given you my ownliness, give me your tomorrow

If I were much poorer than you seem to see me
How could I be surer you could really love me?

If I were a carpenter and you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway, would you have my baby?

If I were a miller at a mill wheel grinding
Would you miss your coloured blouse, your soft shoes shining?

Save my love for loneliness, save my love for sorrow
I have given you my ownliness, give me your tomorrow
I have given you my ownliness, give me your tomorrow

Other recordings and concerts have different words.
