A Young Gypsy (Album Version)

歌詞

A young gypsy fell out in a slumber

 

Heading north with a driver he knew

 

Someone he'd lived with and trusted

 

A young woman who trusted him too

 

That very same day the young gypsy

 

Had come from a farm in the west

 

Where the children had played through the heat of the day

 

Affording the gypsy no rest

 

And the gypsy's bones were weary

And the front seat looked secure

And the gypsy slept on until the sun it was gone

And the stars pierced the eyes of the girl at his side

 

The next morning's day would be Easter

 

He'd dress in his only fine shirt

And shuffle through clusters of strangers

 

With his gaze and his shoes in the dirt

 

And the woman who loved him would watch him

 

Protect him from curious stares

 

For the womenfolk tend to be friendly

 

And the gypsy's as young as he's fair

 

And the evening brought on laughter

 

And jars of bright red wine

And the gypsy drank some and the gypsy had fun

And his dancing got wild and the grandmothers smiled

 

Sleeping came easily after in the arms of the woman

That fold up the secrets and dreams of the gypsy

That will never be sought or be sold

 

In fact they will never be told for the gypsy is two years old
