When he walked to town that evening
Sky was cool and it was clear
Though the night fell quickly on him
He was young and had no fear

Though the road was lined with briers
It was straight as it was broke
Driven on by his desires
He walked on that lonely road

And he bore his love so lightly
Though heavy were his wares
For there was a girl he hoped to see
That night in the Carpenters' Square

When he reached the town he saw her
In her finest silk was she
Then he knew he made her heaven
For he wore simple workman's gear

And her eyes, they burned so brightly
And her gaze, it was so fair
And she filled his mind completely
All the way back from Carpenters' Square


And his gait fell twice as heavy
And his love to big to bear
As he walked from town that Friday
All the way back from Carpenters' Square

And her eyes, they burned so brightly
And her gaze, it was so fair
And she filled his mind completely
All the way back from Carpenters' Square

When he walked to town that evening
Sky was cool, and it was clear
Though the night fell quickly on him
He was young and had no fear.
