Gypsy Davey chords
Arlo Guthrie (Gypsy Laddie English Traditional Folk Music 1720)
E A E A E 2x
It was [E]late last night when the [E6]boss come [E]home,
asking a[E6]bout his [E]lady
The only answer [E6]that he [E]got was,
she's [A]gone with the Gypsy [E]Davey,
[A]gone with the Gypsy [E]Dave
Go [E]saddle me up my [E6]buckskin [E]home,
and my hundred [E6]dollar [E]saddle
Point out to me their [E6]wagon [E]tracks,
and [A]after them I'll [E]travel, and [A]after them I'll [E]ride
Well, I [E]had not rode 'till the [E6]midnight [E]moon,
I saw their [E6]campfire [E]gleaming
I heard the notes of the [E6]big gu[E]itar,
and the [A]voice of the Gypsies [E]singing,
that [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Dave
It was [E]there in the light of the [E6]camping [E]fire,
I saw her [E6]fair face [E]beaming
Her heart in tune to the [E6]big gui[E]tar,
and the [A]song of the gypsies [E]singing,
that [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Dave
[E]Have you forsaken your [E6]house and [E]home?
Have you forsaken your [E6]bab[E]y?
Have you forsaken your [E6]husband [E]dear?
To [A]go with the Gypsy [E]Davey
And [A]sing with the Gypsy [E]Davey
that [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Dave?
Yes, [E]I've forsaken my [E6]husband [E]dear,
to go with the [E6]Gypsy [E]Davey
And I've forsaken my [E6]mansion [E]high,
but [A]not my blue eyed [E]baby,
[A]not my blue eyed [E]babe
She [E]smiled to leave her [E6]husband [E]dear,
to go with the [E6]Gypsy [E]Davey
But the tears come a-trickling [E6]down her [E]cheeks,
to [A]think about her blue eyed [E]baby,
to [A]think about her blue eyed [E]babe
[E]Take off take off those [E6]buckskin [E]gloves,
made of [E6]Spanish [E]leather
Come give to me your [E6]lily-white [E]hand,
and [A]we'll ride home to[E]gether,
and [A]home again we'll [E]ride
No, I [E]won't take off my [E6]buckskin [E]gloves,
made of [E6]Spanish [E]leather
I'll go my way from [E6]day to [E]day,
and [A]sing with the Gypsy [E]Davey,
the [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Davey,
the [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Dave,
the [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Davey,
the [A]song of the Gypsy [E]Dave
E A 4x
