Gypsy Davey Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

Traditional, arranged and adapted by Arlo Guthrie 

 

It was late last night when the boss came home 

Asking about his lady 

The only answer that he got was 

She's gone with the Gypsy Davey 

Gone with the Gypsy Dave 

 

Go saddle me up my buckskin home 

And my hundred dollar saddle 

Point out to me their wagon tracks 

And after them I'll travel and after them l'll ride 

 

Well I had not rode 'till the midnight moon 

I saw their campfire gleaming 

I heard the notes of the big guitar 

And the voice of the Gypsies singing 

That song of the Gypsy Dave 

 

It was there in the light of the camping fire 

I saw her fair face beaming 

Her heart in tune to the big guitar 

And the song of the gypsies singing 

That song of the Gypsy Dave 

 

Have you forsaken your house and home? 

Have you forsaken your baby? 

Have you forsaken your husband dear? 

To go with the Gypsy Davey 

And sing with the Gypsy Davey 

The song of the Gypsy Dave? 

 

Yes I've forsaken my husband dear 

To go with the Gypsy Davey 

And I've forsaken my mansion high 

But not my blue eyed baby 

Not my blue eyed babe 

 

She smiled to leave her husband dear 

To go with the Gypsy Davey 

But the tears come a-trickling down her cheeks 

To think about her blue eyed baby 

To think about her blue eyed babe 

 

Take off take off those buckskin gloves 

Made of Spanish leather 

Come give to me your lily-white hand 

And we'll ride home together 

And home again we'll ride 

 

No I won't take off my buckskin gloves 

Made of Spanish leather 

I'll go my way from day to day 

And sing with the Gypsy Davey 

The song of the Gypsy Davey 

The song of the Gypsy Dave
