Gypsy Blue - Zingaro Blue

 

Intro – Am/Am /G /G /F /F /E

Am                                                           

The first time that he saw her face, she moved with dignity and grace

G                                                  

Lightly like a tiger preys, with wandering eyes that seemed to stray

F

Her skin was soft, her hair was fair, she danced as if she didn't care

E

She sang as if she called to you, with eyes that smiled clear gypsy blue

 

Am

He'd follow her in the morning sun, see her walking then watch her run

G

Count the hours until the sun went down, Listen to her voice when she sang out loud

F

Smell the perfume oozing from her skin, craving her affection while the night begins

E

She was beautiful, she was beautiful, with eyes that sparkled clear gypsy blue

 

         C                 F

And all the men who watched her dance, dreamed of passion and romance

         C                                                               F        

But all she wanted was to be herself, so unaware of life inside her perfect shell

             G                                                    F

She’d laugh and she’d haunt them every day

            G                                                         F

She’d wave her fingers and then she’d walk away

G                                        F

She’d spend the hours taunting you

            G                           F                          C

With eyes that shone clear gypsy blue

 

Am 

He would watch her from his hidden view, lingering forever true

G

Hoping for a chance to meet, step by step he'd walk her street

F

And then one day she strayed alone, right by the water where the reeds had grown

E

She was lightly clad in a flowing gown, she sat herself by the river down

 

Am                                                         

And here is where he met his love, 

G

She made no sound through his leather glove

F

Her skin was soft, her hair so fair, 

E

He told her just how much he cared

 

Solo as verse – Am /G /F /E  

 

Am

He sang and watched her fade away

G

Complexion paling into grey

F

His memories forever true

E

Those eyes that sparkled gypsy blue

         C                 F

And all the men who watched her dance, dreamed of passion and romance

         C                                                               F        

But all she wanted was to be herself, so unaware of life inside her perfect shell

             G                                                    F

She’d laugh and she’d haunt them every day

            G                                                             F

She’d wave her fingers and then she’d walk away

G                                        F

She’d spend the hours taunting you

            G                                  F                     C

With eyes that shone….. clear gypsy blue

 

Solo– Am /G /F             /E

                        She was beautiful, she was beautiful, with eyes that sparkled gypsy blue

Am

And there he laid her down to rest, her hands lay folded on her breast

G

Peacefully as if asleep, he buried her there among the reeds

F

If I can't have you no one can, he chanted softly I'm your man

E

I'll never let the others see, exactly what you mean to me
