GYPSY JANE

GYPSY JANE
(Lerner/Booker/Midler)

Light is dappled green and gold
Dancin’ on the broken cobblestones
Life was sweet, and I was bold
Way back then when I was Gypsy Jane

We were travelin’ at the speed of sound
Velvet boots and dirty feathered crowns
Trippin’ out and tumbling down
Way back then when I was Gypsy Jane

CHORUS:
Hey now, weren’t we invincible?
Wildflowers springing up like weeds
Pipe dreams go up in smoke
And all that remains
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Is the glow, and the glitter, and the ghost of
Gypsy Jane
Gypsy Jane, yeah…

Met the devil had to let him in
Told me angel now it’s time to shed your skin
Well I felt myself unravelin’
As I said goodbye, goodbye to Gypsy Jane

REPEAT CHORUS

Gypsy Jane, are you out there?
With your dress and stockings torn
Are you listening
I still miss you
You’re the best of me
You’re the best of me yeah…

REPEAT CHORUS

Pipe dreams go up in smoke
And all that remains
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Is the glow, and the glitter, and the ghost of
Gypsy Jane
