David Allan Coe - Hey Gypsy

Another David Allan Coe song. "Hey Gypsy", was the last track on Coe's 8th album Tattoo. 
Tattoo was released in August 1977.

Hey gypsy, hey gypsy come on home
Even if it's just to paint your wagon
Old hobo, how long can this go on?
She's mending socks and sittin' home a naggin'

Hey outlaw, let's spend some time together
She said, “Outlaw it doesn't matter
Whether were alone, come on home”

Hey drifter has your feeling for her gone
Have you spent too many nights out on the highway?
“Hey loner”, she said, “Hit the road and sing your songs
It won't be long until I have your baby”


  1. ive loved this song for a long time, it blows me away that its not very well known!

  2. Totally agree, he's a great singer songwriter, still relatively unknown!!
