"The Gypsy's Wife" lyrics

The Gypsy's Wife

And where, where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight
I've heard all the wild reports
They can't be right
But whose head is this
She's dancing with
On the threshing floor
Whose darkness deepens in her arms
A little more

And where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
Where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Ah the silver knives are flashing
In the tired old cafe
A ghost climbs on the table
In a bridal negligee
She says, "My body is the light
My body is the way"
I raise my arm against it all
And I catch the bride's bouquet

And where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
Where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?

Too early for the rainbow
Too early for the dove
These are the final days
This is the darkness
This is the flood
And there is no man or woman
Who can't be touched
But you who come between them
Will be judged

And where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
Where
Where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
