The Gypsy (vom Album: Recent Songs)

And where, where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

I've heard all the wild reports, they can't be right

But whose head is this she's dancing with

on the threshing floor?

Whose darkness deepens in her arms a little more?

And where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

Ah, the silver knives are flashing in that tired old cafe

A ghost climbs on the table in bridal negligee

She says, 'My body is the light, my body is the way'

I raise my arm against it all and I catch the bride's bouquet

So where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

It's too early for the rainbow, too early for the dove

These are the final days,

this is the darkness, this is the flood

And there is no man or woman can be touched

But you who come between them will be judged

So where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?

Where, where is my gypsy wife tonight?
