Gypsy Davy  Woody Guthrie

Verse 1
[C]It was late last night when the boss come home
He's askin' about his lady
The only answer he received, "she's [G7]gone with the
Gypsy [C]Davy, go[G7]ne with the gypsy Da[C]ve"
Verse 2
[C]"go saddle for me my buckskin' horse
And a hundred dollars saddle
Point out to me their wagon t[G7]racks
And af[C]ter them I'll trav[G7]el, after them I'll [C]ride"
Verse 3
[C]Well, I had not rode 'til the midnight moon
When I saw the campfire gleaming
I heard the notes of the big gu[G7]itar
And th[C]e voice of the gypsy[G7] singin' That song of the gypsy[C] Dave
Verse 3
[C]There in the light of the camping fire
I saw her fair face beaming
Her heart in tune with the big gu[G7]itar
And th[C]e voice of the gypsy si[G7]nging That song of the gypsy [C]Dave
Verse 4
[C]Have you forsaken your house and home
Have you forsaken your baby
Have you forsaken your husband d[G7]ear
To go [C]to the gypsy Da[G7]vey And sing with the gypsy [C]Dave That
song of the gypsy Dave
Verse 5
[C]Yes, I've forsaken my husband dear
To go with the gypsy Davy
And I've forsaken my mansion h[G7]igh
But no[C]t my blue-eyed b[G7]aby Not my blue-eyed b[C]abe
Verse 6
[C]She smiled to leave her husband dear
And go with the Gypsy Davy
But the tears come a-tricklin' down her ch[G7]eeks
To thi[C]nk of the blue-eyed b[G7]aby Pretty little blue-eyed [C]babe
Verse 7
[C]Take off take off your buskin'gloves
Made of spanish leather
Give to me your lily-white ha[G7]nd
We'll [C]ride back home toge[G7]ther And we'll ride home ag[C]ain
Verse 8
[C]No, I won't take off my buskin' gloves
They're made of Spanish leather
I'll go my way from day to [G7]day
And si[C]ng with the gypsy Da[G7]vy That song of the gypsy Da[C]ve
That song of the gypsy Davey [G7]That song of the gypsy Dav[C]e
