Vagabonds Of The Western World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I could tell you the story of a vagabond
A playboy of the western world
One day by chance he came upon
A fair young maid, a country girl

He told her that he loved her
And he took all of her silver
He told her that he needed her too
He said, "Hey baby, you've got eyes of blue"
But he was a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say "I do" eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh

He roamed around the cities
Searching for his fortune, fame
No lady ever got to know his name
Shame, but that was his game

Gave a girl a baby boy
He said, "This child is my pride and joy
I'm busy running wild and free
Make sure he grows up like me"
And I'm a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say "I do" eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say "I do" eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say "I do" eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes

Oh, I could tell you a story of a vagabond
He was a playboy of this western world
He wore an earring in his left ear
You see, his father, he was a gypsy

You just might meet him upon the highway
Pretty fine dancer too
But he'd leave you blue, he'd leave you
He'd leave you, he'd leave you woman
