Intro:  ||: A  -  Edim  |  Bm7  -  E7  :||

E7    AM7  Bm7-5      AM7
In a quaint car - a - van, 

 F#m      Bm7          F#7       B7
There's a la - dy they call The Gyp - sy;

        Bm7-5       E7
She can look in the fu - ture

    Bm7-5         E7        A     Edim   Bm7   E7
And drive a - way all your fears.

(E7)        AM7  Bm7-5      AM7
Ev' - ry - thing will come right,

F#m    Bm7           F#7       B7
If you on - ly be - lieve The Gyp - sy;

          Bm7-5       E7
She could tell at a glance

         D9          E7/6     A
That my heart was so full of tears.


     D9           E7 Cdim A6   A
She looked at my hand and told me

    D9          E7  Fdim(III)  A
My lov - er was al -  ways    true;

    F#m Fdim   F#m  Cdim(IV) C#7
And yet  in my heart   I     knew, dear,

         Dalt D6  Bm7-5  Edim E7
Somebody else was kiss - ing  you.

(E7)    AM7  Bm7-5     AM7
But I'll go there a - gain

  F#m    Bm7           F#7       B7
'Cause I want to be - lieve The Gyp - sy;

       Bm7-5         E7
That my lov - er is true

          D9         Bm7-5 E7/6  A
And will come back to me   some day.
