Black Gypsy

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Gliding Bird (1968).

(Emmylou Harris)

Broken bottles, broken songs
Broken people been in town too long
Where's everyone gone?

Ooh baby, this city
Gonna break your heart
Oh gypsy, please tell me
Where everyone's gone.

Never had a second name
Never spoke of why we came
Fellowship and gloriousness
The loneliness of pain
Sittin' in the rain.

Why is the soul of me
Where is my heart
Where is the part of me
That I would give to you
If kindness were my style.

Where is the soul of me
Where is my heart
In my own time
Better leave it behind
In a thousand bottles of wine.

Oh, precious plans of standing strong
Why is life taking so long
I would tell you everything
If I only had the words to explain
Don't know nothin' but the rain.

Why is the soul of me
Where is my heart
Where is the part of me
That I would give to you
If kindness were my style.

Where is the tenderness
Where is the warmth
In my own soul that I let it grow old
Oh, it's gettin' so cold.

Broken bottles broken songs
Broken faces been in town too long
Where has everyone gone.

Oh baby, this city gonna break your heart
Oh gypsy, please tell me, where everyone's gone
Oh gypsy, please tell me, where everyone's gone
Where everyone's gone, where everyone's gone...
