This song is about a man that falls in love with a gypsy woman and when she leaves him, he sets off on a great adventure. He eventually finds himself becoming the gypsy that he longed for and find his contentment.
I met a girl in Yugoslavia, with eyes like cat her name Alicia
I told her that she could stay, but she instead run away
I drink vodka with Russian, you know kind made from spud
He wept under the moon as I play my song, he pay me in his blood… I sang
I travel road I travel rail, just to sing to you my tail
Searching for my gypsy love, this I hope I do not fail
I have become gypsy man, play my song as much I can
My hand slip and my hand slide, we play and we drink all night…. HEY!
I met a girl in the Ukraine, play tambourine make way by train
I asked her is she knew the one I loved, all she say was Spain
I travel south learn to play mandolin, almost lost my life
It was a cobble street cold night in hell, a Spaniard with a knife… I say
I made it to the new land, but what had beat me was my song
I forgot that gypsy one I love, this is where I Belong
