歌詞

The House Carpenter (房屋木匠) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

"Well met well met my own true love

 

Well met well met" cried he

 

"I've just returned from the salt salt sea

All for the love of thee"

 

I could have married the king's daughter dear

She would have married me

 

But I have forsaken her crowns of gold

 

All for the love of thee

 

Well if you could have married

The king's daughter dear

 

I'm sure you are to blame

 

For I am married to a house carpenter

 

And find him a nice young man

 

Oh will you forsake your house carpenter

 

And go along with me

 

I'll take you to where the grass grows green

To the banks of the salt salt sea

 

Well if I should forsake my house carpenter

 

And go along with thee

What have you got to maintain me on

 

And keep me from poverty

 

Six ships six ships all out on the sea

Seven more upon dry land

One hundred and ten all brave sailor men

Will be at your command

 

She picked up her own wee babe

 

Kisses gave him three

Said "Stay right here with my house carpenter

And keep him good company"

 

Then she put on her rich attire

So glorious to behold

 

And as she trod along her way

 

She shown like the glittering gold

 

Well they'd not been gone

But about two weeks

I know it was not three

 

When this fair lady began to weep

She wept most bitterly

 

Ah why do you weep my fair young maid

Weep it for your golden store

 

Or do you weep for your house carpenter

 

Who never you shall see anymore

 

I do not weep for my house carpenter

 

Or for any golden store

 

I do weep for my own wee babe

 

Who never I shall see anymore

 

Well they'd not been gone

But about three weeks

 

I'm sure it was not four

 

Our gallant ship sprang a leak and sank

Never to rise anymore

 

One time around spun our gallant ship

 

Two times around spun she

Three times around spun our gallant ship

 

And sank to the bottom of the sea

 

What hills what hills are those my love

 

That rise so fair and high

 

Those are the hills of heaven my love

 

But not for you and I

 

And what hills what hills are those my love

Those hills so dark and low

 

Those are the hills of hell my love

 

Where you and I must go
