Noble Sissle - Gypsy Blues Lyrics

An African American musician and lyricist
Noble Sissle - Gypsy Blues Lyrics

The song is written by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake from Shuffle Along the musical.

I was talking to a gypsy,

And what did she have to tell you?

When my palm she read,
I asked her when I would wed,
And she shook her head.

And then what did she say?

I don’t know, because I ran away.
Now I’ve got the gypsy blues.

And you’re sorry that you did refuse—

To wait and listen to her gypsy news.

Maybe she was just in doubt.

An’some line was trying to figure out.

And tryin’to find what it was about.

I would give all my weight in gold
To know what she was about to tell me.

But if she had a-said that your sweetie you’d lose,
They’d had to bury you.

(Rather than to start a ruse.)

Why youran away and you got yourdues.

That’s why (you/I) got those ipsy kypsy blues,Gypsy blues.
