The Raggle Taggle Gypsy
The Chieftains Lyrics


There were three old gypsies came to our house door
They came brave and boldly-o
The one sang high and the other sang low
And the other sang a raggle taggle gypsy-o

It was upstairs downstairs the lady went
Put on her suit of leather-o
And there was a cry from around the door
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o

It was late that night that the lord came in
Inquiring for his lady-o
And the servant girl she says to the lord
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o

Well saddle for me my milk white steed
My big horse is not speedy-o
I will ride, I will seek my bride
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o

He rode east and he rode west
He rode north and south also
Until he came to a wide open field
It was there that he spied his lady-o

Tell me how could you leave your goose feather bed
Your blankets strewn so comely-o?
How could you leave your newly wedded lord
All for a raggle taggle gypsy-o?

Well what do I care for my goose feather bed
With all my blankets strewn comely-o?
Tonight I lie in a wide open field
In the arms of a raggle taggle gypsy-o

Tell me how could you leave your house and your land?
How could you leave your money-o?
How could you leave your only wedded lord
All for that raggle taggle gypsy-o?

Well what do I care for my house and my land?
And what do I care for money-o?
I'd rather have a kiss from the yellow gypsy's lips
I'm away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o

I'm away with the raggle taggle gypsy-o
