about

A traditional song of Scottish origin, this song has a great many versions and variations. This is out our one.

lyrics

There were three old gypsies came to our hall door
They came so brave and boldly oh
One sang high and the other sang low
They all sang the raggle taggle gypsy-oh

It was upstairs and downstairs the lady went
Put on her suit of leather-oh
There was a cry from around her door
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-oh

It was late that night that the lord came in
Enquiring for his lady-oh
The servant girl, she said to the lord
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-oh

Ah well saddle for me my milk white steed
For my brown horse is not speedy-oh
I must ride till I seek my bride
She's away with the raggle taggle gypsy-oh

He rode east and he rode west
He rode North and South also
Until he came to wide open plain
It was there that he spied his lady-oh

Tell me how could you leave your goose feather bed
With blankets strewn so comely-oh?
And how could you leave your newly wedded lord
All for some raggle-taggle gypsy oh?

Last night I slept in a goose feather bed
With blankets strewn so comely-oh
Tonight I lie underneath the stars
In the arms of my raggle taggle gypsy-oh

Well how could you leave your house and your land
How could you leave your money-oh?
How could you leave your only wedded lord?
All for some raggle taggle gypsy-oh

What care I for my house and my land?
What care I for money-oh?
I'd rather have a kiss from my yellow gypsies lips
I'm away with the raggle taggle gypsy-oh
