Gypsy Davey It was late last night When the boss came home Asking about his lady And the only answer he received She's gone with the Gypsy Davey She's gone with the Gypsy Dave Go saddle for me my buckskin horse And my hundred dollar saddle Point out to me their waggon tracks And after them I'll travel Well, after them I'll ride Well, he had not rode to the midnight moon When he saw their campfire gleaming And he heard the notes of the big guitar And the voice of the gypsy singing The song of the Gypsy Dave Take off, take off your pigskin gloves And your boots of Spanish leather And give to me your lily white hands We'll go back home together We'll ride back home again No, I won't take off my pigskin gloves Nor my boots of Spanish leather I'll go my way from day to day And sing with the Gypsy Davey I'll go with the Gypsy Dave Have you forsaken your house and home Have you forsaken your baby Have you forsaken your husband dear To go with the Gypsy Davey And sing with the Gypsy Dave Yes, I've forsaken my house and home To go with the Gypsy Davey And I've forsaken my husband dear But not my blue eyed baby My pretty little blue-eyed babe.
