The Gypsy - Gordon Lightfoot
(capo 1st fret)


Hi guys! These chords aren't perfect but they are pretty close. Please correct me. :)


G               D/F#               A                 Bm7
Step inside my tent, said she, I'd like to read you palm
Leave the dollar in the jar, this won't take very long
Leave the circus noise behind, close your eyes, relax your mind
     G               D/F#               A                 B
I'll tell you if you should quit now or if you should go on


B                A                         B            A
Then I said, now what do ya see? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
B              A                       B            F#m
Where'll I go, what'll I be? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.


She threw some sawdust in the air and her hands began to shake
She told me the town where I was born, she almost knew the date
She lit a candle with her eyes and then she made the table rise
She took the dollar from the jar and then she guessed my weight


And then I said, now what do ya see? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
You are so old, you are so wise. Deedlee-dum, deedlee-dy.
Give me a sign, tell it to me. She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
Then she spoke most quietly, oh, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.


When you were a child at school they taught you quite a lot
You were told when you should speak and when you should not
You were taught to read and write, to take your lessons home at night
A little knowledge serves you well but the golden rule does not


Then I said, now what do ya mean? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
Where'll I go, what'll I be? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.


Then when I came home that night to lie awake in bed
I thought of that old gypsy and the words that she had said
And now I see with due respect, the more we learn the worse we get
So if you feel you've no regrets, go have your fortune read


Then I said, now what do ya mean? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
Where'll I go, what'll I be? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
You are so old, you are so wise. Deedlee-dum, deedlee-dy.
Give me a sign, tell it to me. She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.


Where'll I go, what'll I be? She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
You are so old, you are so wise. Deedlee-dum, deedlee-dy.
Give me a sign, tell it to me. She said, deedlee-dum, deedlee-dee.
