Gypsy Woman
Jay & The Americans Lyrics

From nowhere through a caravan
Around the campfire light
A lovely woman in motion
With hair as dark as night
Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark
That hypnotized me with love

She was a gypsy woman,
She was a gypsy woman
She danced around and round to a guitar melody
From the fire her face was all aglow
How she enchanted me
Oh, how I'd like to hold her near
And kiss and forever whisper in her ear

I love you, gypsy woman
I love you, gypsy woman

All through the caravan
She was dancing with all the men
Waiting for the rising sun
Everyone was having fun
I hate to see the lady go
Knowing she'll never know
That I love her, I love her

She was a gypsy woman
a gypsy woman, a gypsy woman, a gypsy woman

Thanks for this. I used to play this B-side at the old corner store jukebox and haven't heard it in quite a while. Great version, but they all are really, 'cause Mayfield wrote such a fabulous tune.

Que coooros! Grandiosa cancion


You should hear this by Brian Hyland. It is the definitive version of the song.


Brain nailed it, but this is also a great version.


What a great combination, Steve Reeves was my favorite childhood hero and this is one of the songs from my teens that just sticks in my mind.


What a different sound from Jay Black! Heard this before, but didn't notice how different it is. Love anything by Jay Black, of all stages and ages. Thanks, dunepaul, and thanks for the info which I had forgotten.

What a fantastic choice of visuals! I almost forgotten how all those epic Sword, Sand & Sandal films always had a hot dance scene. This was one of the better ones! ...I also remember Debra Paget dancing with a snake in another similar film.


Keep up the great work. Excellent rendition of cool song. U picked a great video to accompany it. Was that Steve Reeves (of Hercules fame) in the vid?


The Impressions version is great!


Thank you for sharing that with the group. Curtis (solo) gets my vote.
