[CHORUS] If I was a carpenter And you were a lady Would you marry me anyway? Would you have my baby?

[VERSE 1] If a tinker was my trade Would you tinker with me? Would you keep the vows we made Followin' behind me? And if I was Jesus And I built some crosses Could you see the future? Could stand the losses Of lovin' a carpenter And being a lady And takin' a chance on me Just to be my baby? Save my love through loneliness Save my love through sorrow, yes I'll give you my onliness If you just give me tomorrow If I was a rock star Would you be my groupie? Would you make sweet love to me? Come to California? Well, I might go crazy I have to warn ya Well, I get so mean sometimes When the spirit's on me That I think I'm Jesus Out buildin' crosses Could ya see the future? Could ya stand the losses? Of lovin' a carpenter And being a lady And takin' a chance on me Just to be my baby? Save my love through loneliness Save my love through sorrow, yeah I'll give you my onliness If you'd only give me tomorrow [BRIDGE] [repeat CHORUS] [repeat VERSE 1] And if I was Jesus And I built some crosses Could you see the future? Could stand the losses Of lovin' a carpenter And being a lady? Would ya take a chance on me? Would ya be my baby? Come take a chance on me Won't you come away with me Come take a chance on me Won't you be my baby? Won't ya take a chance on me? Won't ya be my baby? Won't ya take a chance on me? Won't ya be my... ohh, be my... ohhh ... Be my... ohhh... Fade
