G                         C                      G 
Well the gypsy was a lady traveled all over this land 

    C            G                                 D7 
The gypsy always traveled alone she never needed a man 

        G                  C 
And the hobo was a drifter drifted from town to town 

                        G                 D7               G 
The last thing that the hobo needed was a woman to tie him down 


D7                      G           C                  G 
One night they met in a hobo jungle oh the sparks they flew 


They fought just like two cats and dogs  

                             D7 
A settin' there eatin' their stew 

        G                                  C 
But the hobo's heart was a-melting and the gypsy's was on fire 

                    G                D7                G 
And that night in a hobo jungle they were lost in wild desire 


                           C                      G 
Now the gypsy and the hobo traveled all over this land 

C                    G                                    D7 
Border to border and shore to shore they traveled hand in hand 

   G                            C 
So watch the rails and highways wherever you may go 

                G              D7            G 
You may see the gypsy lady and the wandering hobo 


D7                      G           C                  G 
One night they met in a hobo jungle oh the sparks they flew 


They fought just like two cats and dogs  

                             D7 
A settin' there eatin' their stew 

        G                                  C 
But the hobo's heart was a-melting and the gypsy's was on fire 

                    G                D7                G 
And that night in a hobo jungle they were lost in wild desire 


C                           G              D7                G 
Yeah the gypsy lady and the wandering hobo were lost in wild desire
