I recall a gypsy woman    (video)    (midi)

 

    A ~ ~

 

                A            D       A                                                   E

1. Silver coins that jingle-jangle, fancy shoes that dance in time,

                A         D         A                                     - E                   A

    all the secrets of her dark eyes, the lady'd sing       a gypsy rhyme.

 

                  A          D             A                                             E

2. Yellow clover in tangled blossoms, in a meadow silky green,

                        A         D         A                         - E                 A

    where she held me to her bosom, just a boy       of seventeen.

          

       D                  A                                             E

I recall a gypsy woman, silver spangles in her eyes,

            A      D               A                                 - E                         A

ivory skin against the moonlight, and the taste      of life's sweet wine.

 

                            A              D            A                                                  E

3. Soft breezes blow from fragrant meadows, stir the darkness in my mind.

                        A                   D         A

    Oh, gentle woman, you sleep beside me,

                            - E                             A

    and little know       who haunts my mind.

 

                A          D             A                                                   E

4. Gypsy lady, I hear your laughter, and the dance is in my head,

                    A          D           A                                - E              D

    while my tender wife and babies slumber softly       in their beds.

 

       D                  A                                             E

I recall a gypsy woman, silver spangles in her eyes,

            A      D               A                                 - E                         A

ivory skin against the moonlight, and the taste      of life's sweet wine.
