Gypsy Songman  Jerry Jeff Walker

Words & Music by Jerry Jeff Walker
Lyrics as per "Mr. Bojangles" CD.
[C]I'm Gypsy Songman y[F]es[C]sir you'd li[G]ke to hear a song
Well I'll pick it for you now and [C]play it all night long
If the [F]blues is all you see this song is what you need
Gypsy [C]Songman [G]passing [C]by
My whole life is a song and I'll share it with you now
Pickin' and a-singin' I'll get by somehow
A dime would help me please a smile is all I need
Gypsy Songman passing by
Kids come a runnin' as I pass by they all want to see
Say "Hey Gypsy Songman, play a song for me"
Their eyes glued on the strings, dancin' as I sing
Gypsy Songman passing by
I've got as stage on every corner got a hall on every street
My hat is my coinbox this song is what you need
It's just a swapping time, this song is for your dime
Gypsy Songman passing by
So as I leave you now please remember me this time
I'm the man who sang the song for your nickles and your dimes
Today you saw me play as I stopped along the way
Gypsy Songman passing by
Barefoot Larry
