"Gypsy Lands"
song lyrics by Me for my forthcoming post-folk band

We rode a caravan
across our soul tundras
we threw our hearts
into the sea
I called your name, mama
but you couldn't see
the sounds of gypsies crying please

Sweet gypsy lands
make me your soul child
I am the wind maker
Oh gyspy lands set me free

Gypsy brothers take me with you
I'll flap my arms across the land
into the sea
I'll strum my banjo
til the strings fall off
and we tie them up upon
an old gypsy tree

Sweet gypsy lands
make me your soul child
I am the wind maker
Oh gyspy lands set me free

So many nights mama
since I saw you
on the porch with a rifle on your knee
But when I howl at the moon
and I play this crazy tune
I know gypsy is all I'll never be
