Gypsy Eyes
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well I realize I've been hypnotized
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes

All right
Gypsy

Way up in my tree I'm sitting by my fire
Wonderin' where in this world might you be
And known' all the time
Your still rollin' along the country side
Do you still think about me?

Oh my
Gypsy

Well, I walked right on up to your rubble road side
The one that rambles on for a million miles
Yes, I walked down this road searching for your love
And I found some too
But I found her I ain't gonna let go

I remember the first time I saw you
The tears in your eyes look like they're tryin' to say
Oh, little boy, you know I could love you
But first I must make my getaway
Two strange men fightin' to the death over me today
I'll try and meet you by the old highway
Hey!

Well, I realize that I've been hypnotized
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes
I love your gypsy eyes

I've been searching so long
My feet have made me lose the battle
Down against the road my weary knees they got me
Off to the side I fall but I hear her sweet call
My gypsy eyes is comin' and I've been saved
Oh, I've been saved
That's why I love you




Said, I love you
Lord, I love you
