Gypsy Davy.
Arlo Guthrie.
Album: Hobo's Lullaby.

Intro: A C#m A E A E

E
It was late last night when the boss came home,
E 
Asking about his lady,
E               C#m
The only answer that he got was,
      A                   E
She's gone with the Gypsy Davy,
A                   E
Gone with the Gypsy Dave.

E
Go saddle me up my buckskin home,
E
And my hundred dollar saddle,
E                     C#m
Point out to me their wagon tracks,
    A               E
And after them I'll travel, 
    A               E
And after them I'll ride.

E
Well I had not rode 'till the midnight moon,
E
I saw their campfire gleaming,
A                            C#m
I heard the notes of the big guitar,
        A                    E
And the voice of the Gypsies singing,
     A                 E
That song of the Gypsy Dave.

E
It was there in the light of the camping fire,
E
I saw her fair face beaming,
A                        C#m
Her heart in tune to the big guitar,
        A                   E
And the song of the gypsies singing,
     A                 E
That song of the Gypsy Dave.

E
Have you forsaken your house and home?
E
Have you forsaken your baby?
A                      C#m
Have you forsaken your husband dear?
   A                 E
To go with the Gypsy Davy,
    A                   E
And sing with the Gypsy Davy,
    A                 E
The song of the Gypsy Dave.

E
Yes I've forsaken my husband dear,
E
To go with the Gypsy Davy,
A                    C#m
And I've forsaken my mansion high,
    A                E
But not my blue eyed baby,
    A            E
Not my blue eyed babe.

Break: E C#m A E A E

E
She smiled to leave her husband dear,
E
To go with the Gypsy Davy,
A                              C#m
But the tears come a-trickling down her cheeks,
   A                         E
To think about her blue eyed baby,
   A                         E
To think about her blue eyed babe.

E
Take off take off those buckskin gloves,
E
Made of Spanish leather,
A                    C#m
Come give to me your lily-white hand,
    A               E
And we'll ride home together,
    A                E
And home again we'll ride.

E
No I won't take off my buckskin gloves,
E
Made of Spanish leather,
A                   C#m
I'll go my way from day to day,
    A                   E
And sing with the Gypsy Davy,
    A                 E
The song of the Gypsy Davy,
    A                 E
The song of the Gypsy Davy,
    A                 E
The song of the Gypsy Dave.

A E - until end.
