Willie Nelson & Sheryl Crow – If I Were A Carpenter (Live)

Tijdens een tribute-concert voor Johnny Cash in Austin werden er opnames gemaakt voor een CD/DVD (We walk The Line: A Celebration Of The Music Of Johnny Cash) die deze maand uitkomt. Willie Nelson en Sheryl Crow brengen deze hit uit 1970 van Johnny Cash en diens vrouw June Carter. O.a. Kris Kristofferson, Ronnie Dunn, Jamey Johnson en Shooter Jennings werkten mee aan dit project. U krijgt ook de originele versie van mij.

Songtekst :

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.

Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I’m given you my onliness,
Come give your tomorrow.

If I worked my hands in wood,
Would you still love me?
Answer me babe, “Yes I would,
I’ll put you above me.”

If I were a miller
at a mill wheel grinding,
would you miss your color box,
and your soft shoe shining?

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