Music/ lyric composed by myself and Phil Simpson
My pal Vic Arnold did a couple of great versions of this too.
I asked Mike Zaneski a fellow Wateboys fan to do a folk version and he came up with this which he also arranged and produced .
Both Mike and myself gave a nod to Mike Scott of the Waterboys along the way.

Travis

SHE'S A GYPSY I'M A ROVER.

c
She's a Gypsy I'm a Rover
I'd like to settle but the road takes over
Paths of stone or fields of clover
She's a gypsy I'm a rover

VERSE
she loves me but she doesn't need me
a free spirit that won't be bound
Wild as a raging sea
Her name whispered in the tree
Pays a quarter, stands her ground

CHORUS
She's a Gypsy I'm a Rover
like to settle but the road takes over
Paths of stone or fields of clover
She's a gypsy I'm a rover

VERSE
love her but i don't crave love
there's only so much you can share
Stay together if we could
but staying put's not in this blood
I never had the time to spare

BRIDGE
Just Ships in the night
we touch and kiss
Sailing out of sight
vanished -with the mist
vanished....with the mist

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS

OUTRO INSTRUMENTA

Hi Travis.
This sounds similar to the one you posted some months ago.
Is it a re-mix?
Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Travis,

I don't know what else you have on your list, but this is a pretty sounding tune with some sweet lyrics. Like where the melody goes in that chorus, and then how it flows back into the hook. Not sure what you are submitting for, but this is a strong offering in any regard.

My best to you,

Deej

Cheers Deej
The feedback is flowing like glue.
I've resubmitted it for radio although it had one play before the revamp and unsure about any further plans
Cheers
John

Hi Travis:

I thought it had been posted before... a version by Vic... but as creative beings, we must try to do whatever we can to move our songs up the ladder. It's an enjoyable listen and Mike Z is getting more into a comfort zone with each passing demo. I think this may be one of his best... to the point he even sounds a bit "Irish" in his vocal delivery.

You and Phil must be absolutely delighted with this one. I know that I would be, too!

Best wishes for success with it... and, as always, thanks for taking time to share it with us.

----Dave

This is my favorite kind of song - folky and uptempo. Gonna stick in my head for the evening, I reckon. smile

Great job on the lyric - dig the rhyme scheme. And Mike's production is excellent, as usual. Love the outro!

John/Mike,

This one's ready! Loved it in all aspects--especially the jig at the end.

Travis, I've greatly enjoyed every version of this song. It has a wild and untamed feel, lyrically and musically, in all its incarnations. May you have continued success with it.
