Got me a postcard and a 20 dollar bill
Told you I'd meet you in Memphis if you bring me those pills
And I got high and I got dry for far to long
And the gypsy train to Houston is gonna take me along

They Called me a wild card
And they called me their fool
I told them id bring them their money if They get me back to you
And I got cash and I got robbed for all I own
And the gypsy train to Houston is gonna take me back home

I got clean and I got a steady job
No longer was I running from the emblems of the law
And I got clean and I got mean to the bone
And the gypsy train to Houston won't leave me alone

And the gypsy train to Houston won't leave me alone

    My InterpretationIt's about being an addict. The "Gypsy Train to Houston" is the pull of addiction. First it takes you along, then it becomes "home," then even when you're clean it "won't leave you alone." All that after your addiction left you "robbed for all I own." Great tune. I love it
