The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Gypsy Forest lyrics

(Acoustic guitar intro)

The dolphins live in the open sea

And the gypsies live in the forest

While the owls and the crows and the sure foot does

Still live like those before us

(Mandolin ditty)

And the oak and the pine and the sycamore shines

And the day spins round like a feather

And the sawmill whines and the bluebird dines

And the song goes on forever

(Harp ditty)

(Oboe solo)

Now the old folk tell of an ancient bell

Somewhere sunk in the meadow

But the shepherd there with the snow white hair

Just sings in the evening shadows

And no one knows where the clear creek goes

When the moonlight fades in the forest

But the peacock screams and the gypsy dreams

Of a time gone by before us

(Oboe solo)

Round and a round and a round and a round

Round and a round and a round

Round and a round and a round and a round

Round and a round and a round...


Lyrics are copyright 1975, 1976 Steve Cash & Randle Chowning
