About the Artist
Timothy James Hardin (December 23, 1941 – December 29, 1980[1] ) was an American folk musician and composer. He is best remembered for writing the Top 40 hits "If I Were a Carpenter", covered by Bobby Darin, and "Reason to Believe", covered by Rod Stewart, as well as his own uneven recording career. Hardin dropped out of high school at age 18 to join the Marine Corps. He spent part of 1959 in Vietnam as a military advisor. He told the story that his sergeant was killed on patrol that year, but because the US didn't admit to any military dead until 1961, his sergeant was listed as having been killed that year. Hardin is said to have discovered heroin in Vietnam. "If I Were a Carpenter" is a song written by Tim Hardin.
