I'm Gypsy Songman, yes sir, you'd like to hear my song
Pick it for you now, play it all night long
If blues is all you see, this song is what you need
Gypsy Songman passing by

Yeah, my whole life is a song and I'll share it with you now
Pickin' and a singin', I'll get by somehow
A dime would help me, please, a smile is all I need
Gypsy Songman passing by

Kids come a runnin' as I pass by, they all want to see
Say, "Hey, Gypsy Songman, play a song for me"
[Incomprehensible]
Gypsy Songman passing by

I've got as stage on every corner, got a hall on every street
My hat is my coin box, this song is what you need
It's just a swapping time, a song is for your dime
Gypsy Songman passing by

So as I leave you now, please remember me this time
I'm the man who sang the song for your nickels and your dimes
Today you saw me play as I stopped along the way
Gypsy Songman passing by

Yeah, I'm Gypsy Songman, yes sir, you'd like to hear my song
Pick it for you now, play it all night long
If blues is all you see, this song is what you need
Gypsy Songman passing by, just a Gypsy Songman passing by
