It was late last night when the boss come home

He's askin' about his lady

The only answer he received, "she's gone with the

Gypsy Davy, gone with the gypsy Dave"


Verse 2
C
"go saddle for me my buckskin' horse

And a hundred dollars saddle
                             G7      
Point out to me their wagon tracks
      C                 G7                  C
And after them I'll travel, after them I'll ride"

C
Well, I had not rode 'til the midnight moon

When I saw the campfire gleaming
                               G7      
I heard the notes of the big guitar
      C                   G7                             C
And the voice of the gypsy singin' That song of the gypsy Dave

C
There in the light of the camping fire

I saw her fair face beaming
                                 G7      
Her heart in tune with the big guitar
      C                      G7                           C
And the voice of the gypsy singing That song of the gypsy Dave


Verse 4
C
Have you forsaken your house and home

Have you forsaken your baby
                                G7      
Have you forsaken your husband dear
      C              G7                          C  
To go to the gypsy Davey And sing with the gypsy Dave That 
                   
song of the gypsy Dave

C
Yes, I've forsaken my husband dear

To go with the gypsy Davy
                              G7      
And I've forsaken my mansion high
      C               G7                    C
But not my blue-eyed baby Not my blue-eyed babe

She smiled to leave her husband dear

And go with the Gypsy Davy
                                          G7      
But the tears come a-tricklin' down her cheeks
      C                    G7                          C
To think of the blue-eyed baby Pretty little blue-eyed babe

Take off take off your buskin'gloves

Made of spanish leather
                             G7      
Give to me your lily-white hand
      C                  G7                         C
We'll ride back home together And we'll ride home again

C
No, I won't take off my buskin' gloves

They're made of Spanish leather

I'll go my way from day to day
      C                   G7                          C
And sing with the gypsy Davy That song of the gypsy Dave

That song of the gypsy Davey That song of the gypsy Dave
