    "House Carpenter" Lyrics

    Clarence Ashley

    We'll met we'll met said an old true love
    We'll met we'll met said he
    I'm just returning from the salt salt sea
    And it's all for the love of thee

    Climb in climb in my old true love
    And have a seat with me
    It's been three-fourths of a long long year
    Since together we have been

    Well I can't come in or I can't sit down
    For I haven't but a moment's time

    They say you're married to a house carpenter
    And your heart will never be mine

    Now it's I coulda married a king's daughter here
    I'm sure she'da married me
    But I've forsaken her crowns of gold
    And it's all for the love of thee

    Now will you forsaken your house carpenter
    And go along with me
    I'll take you where the grass grows green
    On the banks of the deep blue sea

    She picked up here little babe
    And kisses gave him three
    Says stay right here my darling little babe
    And keep your pappa company

    Well they hadn't been on ship but about two weeks
    I'm sure it wasn't three
    Well his true love began to weep and mourn
    And he weeped most bitterly

    Says are you a-weepin' for my silver or my gold
    Says are you weeping for my store
    Are you weeping for that house carpenter
    Whose face you'll never see any more

    No it's I'm not a-weepin' for your silver or your gold
    Or neither for your store
    I am weeping for my darling little babe
    Whose face I'll never see any more

    Well they hadn't been on ship but about three weeks
    I'm sure it wasn't four
    'Til they sprung a leak in the bottom of the ship
    And they sunk for to rise no more
