Gypsy Blood (A Frank Willis)

Well, I'm selling everything I own,
the kitchen table, too,
I really didn't watch too much TV;
The stereo ain't been turned on,
got more things to do,
Guess it didn't mean that much to me.

The chesterfield that I slept on
instead of going to bed,
I sold it to the neighbour yesterday;
The guitar I played to write this song
as it came in my head,
Is the only thing I'm taking along the way.

There's a great big world
a-waitin' down the highway,
And there's a lotta places I ain't ever seen;
You can't slow me down 'cause
nothin's getting in my way,
I got gypsy blood runnin' through my veins.

The train she rides beside me
keeps me company for a mile,
As I rolled the window down
to feel the breeze;
And I slipped into the cradle
of two truckers for a while,
The sun she slowly rises 'bove the trees.

There's a great big world
a-waitin' down the highway,
And there's a lotta places I ain't ever seen;
You can't slow me down 'cause nothin's
getting in my way,
I got gypsy blood runnin' through my veins.
