“Gypsy Soul” – Lyrics

Tired of the daily grind
Want to leave the status quo behind
Grow my hair child and feel the breeze
No boss no telephone, without a watch time
is my own to do with, do with it as I please

I said whoa, I hear that voice side
I’m living are child till the day I die
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul

I’ve tried to do the right thing
I got caught up in their whole game
I never took the time to worry about me
Selfless in every way but who’s dues did I really pay
It’s over now and I’ve gotta break free

I said whoa, I hear that voice side
I’m living are child till the day I die
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul
I’m getting to comfortable
I think I better go
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul
I think I’d die if I stayed too long
Gotta let my spirit roll
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul

Everyday’s a brand new life
Country Days and city nights
Lord there’s so much left to see
I’ve thought about settling down
But there’s always one more town
That’s just how it’s got to be
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul
I think I’d die if I stayed too long
Gotta let my spirit roll
I’ve got a Gypsy Soul
