From the album The Way I Am

Lyrics

Gypsy Melody - (Gm) by Roxanne Delage, based on a poem by Colena MacCuaig (just a couple of gypsies)
Here’s a story about a girl; lived a life around the world
Gypsy wind took her away
Born in 1964 to a family plain and poor
Knew early on she wanted more
Left the first of May; gypsy girl just couldn’t stay
Mamma cried that day; she knew there was no other way
Chorus - And they sang “0h.....................................” They sang and dance so merrily
“Oh..........................................................” Went their gypsy melody,
Lonely roads are cruel they say but let no man get in her way
A lesson learned one stormy day
Live a life without regret; mamma’s words she won’t forget
Wisdom she would not betray
Like a road that has no end freedom is her dearest friend
Merrily along, as she sings her mamma’s song
Chorus
Poor old mamma’s dead and gone but gypsy spirits linger on
Reminder of a life beyond
Gypsy girl is old and grey; lives a life of wine and love and play
and gratitude she can’t repay
Like a road that has no end
Freedom is her dearest friend
Merrily along, as she sings her mamma’s song
Chorus
