Lyrics: Seven gypsies stood in a row And they sang so sweetly through the air They sang so sweet, so very sweet They stole the heart of the lady fair She stood in her castle high Smiling on those gypsies-o A jealous thought came into her mind She would follow the dark-eyed gypsies-o Her young lord came home that night enquiring for his lady-o "I'm afraid, i'm afraid," said the old kitchen maid "She's gone with the dark-eyed gypsies-o" He rode east and he rode west 'Til he came to a farmer's door "Farmer, farmer tell me the truth Have you seen the dark-eyed gypsies-o?" "Ride on, ride on," the farmer cried "Down in yonder valley-o There you'll find your own true bride In the arms of a dark-eyed gypsy-o" "Will you forsake your house and land will you give up your little son will you lie on the cold cool ground In the arms of a dark eyed gypsy-o" "I'll give up, my lord," she said, "I'll forsake my little son" I'll eat off the grass and drink of the dew And lie with the dark eyed gypsy-o
