I'm Gypsy Songman yes sir you'd like to hear a song
Well I'll pick it for you now and play it all night long
If the blues is all you see this song is what you need

Gypsy Songman passing by

My whole life is a song and I'll share it with you now
Pickin and a singin I'll get by somehow
A dime would help me please a smile is all I need
Gypsy Songman passing by


Kids come a runnin as I pass by they all want to see
Say "Hey Gypsy Songman, play a song for me"
Their eyes glued on the strings, dancin as I sing
Gypsy Songman passing by

I've got as stage on every corner got a hall on every street
My hat is my coin box this song is what you need
It's just a swapping time; this song is for your dime
Gypsy Songman passing by


So as I leave you now please remember me this time
I'm the man who sang the song for your nickels and your dimes
Today you saw me play as I stopped along the way
Gypsy Songman passing by
