Theres a story the gypsies know is true
That when your love wears golden earrings
She belongs to you
An old love story thats known to very few
But if you wear those golden earrings
Love will come to you
By the burning fire, they will glow with evry coal
You will hear desire whisper low inside your soul
So be my gypsy
Make love your guiding light
And let that pair of golden earrings
Cast their spell tonight

    Have to admit. I started playing it, and can't put the guitar down. Now that eerie tune in my head, will lull me to sleep every night 'til I can play it flawlessly.

    hmm,...first heard it in 1947 by Marlene Dietrich. Didn't like it then, and it never was on American Bandstand,...too dreary. Didn't like the beat, hard to dance to,....I'd rate it a 40%. (of 110%)
