Gypsy Davey chords
Arlo Guthrie (Gypsy Laddie English Traditional Folk Music 1720)

C F C  F C  2x

       C                        C6        C
It was late last night when the boss come home,
        C6       C
asking about his lady
                C6      C
The only answer that he got was,
      F                   C
she's gone with the Gypsy Davey,
F                   C
gone with the Gypsy Dave

   C               C6       C
Go saddle me up my buckskin home,
               C6     C
and my hundred dollar saddle
                      C6    C
Point out to me their wagon tracks,
    F               C           F               C
and after them I'll travel, and after them I'll ride

        C                      C6       C
Well, I had not rode 'till the midnight moon,
            C6       C
I saw their campfire gleaming
                         C6    C
I heard the notes of the big guitar,
        F                    C
and the voice of the Gypsies singing,
     F                 C
that song of the Gypsy Dave

       C                         C6      C
It was there in the light of the camping fire,
          C6        C
I saw her fair face beaming
                         C6     C
Her heart in tune to the big guitar,
        F                   C
and the song of the gypsies singing,
     F                 C
that song of the Gypsy Dave

C                      C6        C
Have you forsaken your house and home?
                       C6 C
Have you forsaken your baby?
                       C6      C
Have you forsaken your husband dear?
   F                 C
To go with the Gypsy Davey
    F                   C
And sing with the Gypsy Davey
     F                 C
that song of the Gypsy Dave?

     C                C6      C
Yes, I've forsaken my husband dear,
               C6    C
to go with the Gypsy Davey
                     C6      C
And I've forsaken my mansion high,
    F                C
but not my blue eyed baby,
F                C
not my blue eyed babe

    C                   C6      C
She smiled to leave her husband dear,
               C6    C
to go with the Gypsy Davey
                               C6       C
But the tears come a-trickling down her cheeks,
   F                         C
to think about her blue eyed baby,
   F                         C
to think about her blue eyed babe

C                       C6       C
Take off take off those buckskin gloves,
        C6      C
made of Spanish leather
                     C6         C
Come give to me your lily-white hand,
    F                 C
and we'll ride home together,
    F                C
and home again we'll ride

      C                 C6       C
No, I won't take off my buckskin gloves,
        C6      C
made of Spanish leather
                    C6     C
I'll go my way from day to day,
    F                   C
and sing with the Gypsy Davey,
    F                 C
the song of the Gypsy Davey,
    F                 C
the song of the Gypsy Dave,
    F                 C
the song of the Gypsy Davey,
    F                 C
the song of the Gypsy Dave
