Track 12: GYPSY DAVY

Child 200, as distilled through Woody Guthrie and Cliff Carlisle. For other U.S. versions, see Coffin, 120.

It was late last night when the boss come home 
Asking about his lady
The only answer he received "She's gone with the Gypsy Davy
Gone with the Gypsy Dave.

Go saddle for me my buckskin horse with the 100 dollar saddle
Point out to me their wagon tracks and after them I'll travel,
After them I'll ride.

Well I had not rode til the midnight moon when I saw the campfire gleaming
I heard the notes of the big guitar and the voice of the gypsy singing
The song of the Gypsy Dave.

There in the line of the cracklin' fire I saw her fair face beaming
Her heart in tune with the big guitar and the voice of the gypsy singing
The song of the Gypsy Dave.

Have you forsaken your husband dear, have you forsaken your baby?
Have you forsaken your fine fine home to go with the Gypsy Davy
To sing with the Gypsy Dave?

Yes I've forsaken my husband dear to go with the Gypsy Davy
I've forsaken my mansion high but not my blue-eyed baby
My pretty little blue-eyed baby.

She smiled to leave her husband dear to go with the Gypsy Davy
But the tears come a tricklin' down her cheek when she thought of the blue-eyed baby,
Pretty little blue-eyed babe.

Take off take off your buck-skin gloves, made of Spanish leather
Give to me your lily-white hand, we'll ride back home together,
We'll ride home again.

No, I won't take off my buckskin gloves made of Spanish leather
I'll go my way from day to day and I'll ride with the Gypsy Davy
Sing with the Gypsy Dave.

Last night she slept on a fine feather bed by the side of her husband and baby
Tonight she'll sleep on the cold cold ground by the side of the Gypsy Davy
By the side of the Gypsy Dave, 
Singin' with the Gypsy Dave, 
The song of the Gypsy Dave.
