About this tab version
Donovan never really picks this exactly the same way, each of his performances differ. This is the closest to the album version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
The song consists of four parts: intro, verse, chorus and a harp solo.
Each one of the five verses is followed by a chorus.

[Verse]
We stood in the windy city,
The gypsy boy and I.
We slept on the breeze in the midnight
With the rain droppin' tears in our eyes.

[Chorus]
And who's going to be the one
To say it was no good what we done?
I dare a man to say I'm too young,
For I'm going to try for the sun.

[Verse]
We huddled in a derelict building
And when he thought I was asleep
He laid his poor coat round my shoulder,
And shivered there beside me in a heap.

[Chorus]

[Verse]
We sang and cracked the sky with laughter,
Our breath turned to mist in the cold.
Our years put together count to thirty,
But our eyes told the dawn we were old.

[Chorus]

[Verse]
Mirror, mirror, hanging in the sky,
Won't you look down what's happening here below?
I stand here singing to the flowers,
So very few people really know.

[Chorus]

[Verse]
We stood in the windy city
The gypsy boy and I.
We slept on the breeze in the midnight,
With the rain droppin' tears in our eyes.

[Chorus]
