GYPSY AND THE TEA LEAVES
(Hank Thompson - Marvin Hipps)
« © '59 Brazos Valley Music »
The Gypsy spread the tea leaves to find the reason why
You took my heart and broke it and told me all those lies
The sign of loving someone was seen there in the leaves
But why was it another why couldn't it be me
The tea leaves are just one way to show me I have lost
Someone near to me someone dear to me for her I'll pay the cost
The Gypsy broke my heart dear though I know she meant no harm
There were teardrops on the tea leaves because you're in another's arms
The tea leaves are just one way...
