Intro: F  E  Am  D/F#


VERSE:

F        E          Am                 D/F#
I was a fool I was so much younger then
F              E                Am
The night she took me by surprise
F               E              Am                D/F#
I should have known all the trouble that I'd be in
F               E                   Am
But then she hooked me with those eyes
F              E                Am                  D/F#
Her drink was gin as she said tonight would never end
F                  E                  Am
But her love weighed so heavy on my mind
F                 E                   Am                    D5
For she was the live-in lover of a drummer I called my friend
F                          E             D
She weren't nothing but a gypsy in disguise


CHORUS:

F       E               Am          D/F#
Gypsy woman how'd you do that to me
F      E             Am                 Am/G   Am/F  Am/E
Gypsy woman stole my heart and then you set me free
F       E               Am          D/F#
Gypsy woman how'd you learn to like that
F       E             Am
Gypsy woman come on back


VERSE:

F            E       Am            D/F#
Spending my wages on rose and wine
F              E                      Am
We'd ride the days and we'd dance the nights
F                   E        Am   D/F#
The things we could do in my old VW
F                        E                Am
The city lights never seemed so bright from the reservoir
F                    E                    Am                  D/F#
And my friends they would warn me saying she's one fickle queen
F                       E                   Am
Better get out while the getting is good my friend
F                                  E
And besides her old drummer man is looking
            Am              D/F#
And he's so big and bad and mean
F                    E  F                        E
But what I didn't know then is what I know too well
F                 E        D
She played me like a violin


(Chorus)


F                           G              Am
So you tell me that you're leaving me now
F                          G                Am
After all the times that we have been through
F                      G                   Am
As your clown how am I gonna ever go home
            F              G          D
Somebody tell me what am I gonna do

VERSE:

F                        E
And so it goes I lost my pride
             Am           D/F#
And I lost my job
        F                     E                      Am
This gypsy woman took nearly every thing I called my own
Am
It was a big surprise
F                        E          Am         D
So next time she comes dancing prancing through the town
F                E
Gonna recognize the gypsy
F                   E
I'm gonna recognize the gypsy
F                    E             Am
Gonna recognize the gypsy in disguise
 

To give it an ending that is more like one of Martin Sexton’s live versions of this 
song, play something like this.  Give it a little Gypsy style.

I would take it into something like this and progressively go faster each time I go through it.

End with this:
