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

E A E  A E  2x

       E                        E6        E
It was late last night when the boss come home,
        E6       E
asking about his lady
                E6      E
The only answer that he got was,
      A                   E
she's gone with the Gypsy Davey,
A                   E
gone with the Gypsy Dave

   E               E6       E
Go saddle me up my buckskin home,
               E6     E
and my hundred dollar saddle
                      E6    E
Point out to me their wagon tracks,
    A               E           A               E
and after them I'll travel, and after them I'll ride

        E                      E6       E
Well, I had not rode 'till the midnight moon,
            E6       E
I saw their campfire gleaming
                         E6    E
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                         E6      E
It was there in the light of the camping fire,
          E6        E
I saw her fair face beaming
                         E6     E
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                      E6        E
Have you forsaken your house and home?
                       E6 E
Have you forsaken your baby?
                       E6      E
Have you forsaken your husband dear?
   A                 E
To go with the Gypsy Davey
    A                   E
And sing with the Gypsy Davey
     A                 E
that song of the Gypsy Dave?

     E                E6      E
Yes, I've forsaken my husband dear,
               E6    E
to go with the Gypsy Davey
                     E6      E
And I've forsaken my mansion high,
    A                E
but not my blue eyed baby,
A                E
not my blue eyed babe

    E                   E6      E
She smiled to leave her husband dear,
               E6    E
to go with the Gypsy Davey
                               E6       E
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                       E6       E
Take off take off those buckskin gloves,
        E6      E
made of Spanish leather
                     E6         E
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                 E6       E
No, I won't take off my buckskin gloves,
        E6      E
made of Spanish leather
                    E6     E
I'll go my way from day to day,
    A                   E
and sing with the Gypsy Davey,
    A                 E
the song of the Gypsy Davey,
    A                 E
the song of the Gypsy Dave,
    A                 E
the song of the Gypsy Davey,
    A                 E
the song of the Gypsy Dave
