In 1989, Johnny Cash recorded WOODCARVER as a duet with Irish singer Sandy Kelly. I can't find any evidence of it being released on any of Cash's albums, other than bootlegs.

AMG - All Music Guide says that Glen Campbell recorded a song called WOODCARVER. It's on his album "Walkin' in the Sun" (1990). That one was written by Rusty Wolfe and Pam Wolfe.

I couldn't find any sound samples or lyrics. It would be very helpful if we had a quote from the song.

Sandy Kelly:

Woodcarver, carve me the house of my dreams.
Carve me a valley. Make me a stream
That runs through the mountains and under the trees.
Woodcarver, do this for me.

Johnny Cash:

Well, I can carve you a house out of oak, out of pine,
Make you a cottage that sits on the line,
Or even a cottage that no one can find,
With a sun that forever will shine,
But I can't make it real for you.
It's only as real as the wood that I use.
I can't make your dreams come through.
That's something you'll have to do.

That is first bit of song. Can't be bothered typing anymore.

I transcribed this from the video – see the URL above.


WOODCARVER
As sung by Johnny Cash & Sandy Kelly

SK: Woodcarver, carve me the house of my dreams.
Carve me a valley. Make me a stream
That runs through the mountains and under the trees.
Woodcarver, do this for me.

JC: Well, I can carve you a house out of oak, out of pine,
Make you a castle that sits on the Rhine,
Even a cottage that no one can find,
With a sun that forever will shine,

But I can't make it real for you,
Only as real as the wood that I use.
I can't make your dreams come true.
That's something you'll have to do.

SK: Woodcarver, carve me the love I can't find.
Make him gentle, tender and kind.
Carve him a heart that will always be mine.
Woodcarver, take your time.

JC: Well, I can carve you a knight or a cowboy in jeans,
Or maybe a sailor coming home from the sea,
As hard as the oak or as soft as the pine,
Just like the man you can't find,

But I can't make it real for you,
Only as real as the wood that I use.
I can't make your dreams come true.
That's something you'll have to do.

SK: Woodcarver, do you mind if I watch?
Your hands are so smooth and your chisel so sharp.
I promise that I will not get in your way.
Woodcarver, please let me stay.

JC: Well, I can carve you your house. I can carve you your man,
But I can give you much more with these woodcarving hands.
No, you won't be a bother if you want to stay.
Do you know what I'm trying to say?

I could make it real for you.
I'm as real as the wood that I use.
I could make your dreams come true.
There's nothing more you'd have to do.

SK: Oh, woodcarver, make it come true.

Woodcarver, carve me the house of my dreams.
Carve me a valley. Make me a stream
That runs through the mountains and under the trees.
Woodcarver, do this for me.

Please note: The song uses three chords and there are no key changes. There is one place where the chords change just a bit, but you'll pick up on that--use it as a learning experience. I don't know what key the song is done in, but transposition won't be at all difficult. Any problems, please come back and ask, Guest 12 Jan 14 - 08:49 AM.

That is one beautiful well-written song.
