Song Description

One woman travelling meets another. They have alot in common. The first woman asks the second why do we chose this life? Life like gypsy queens. The second woman answers: to follow our gypsy kings.

Story Behind the Song

I met a woman who was travelling and was elegant and wise like a queen. We both had similar experiences, so I wrote the song about Katrine-the gypsy queen, but her name is not included in the song. I wrote it as a going away gift for her. I recorded it soon after. I won the gold award for the song in the Shout Back Song writing contest.

Lyrics

She travelled so many foreign lands
With a leather bound book in her hands
And her babies and hopes and dreams in tow
Like a nomad living on the sand
She travelled from land to land to land
Not know next where they would go

CHORUS
Life Like A Gypsy
Life Like A Gypsy
Life Like A Gypsy Queen (repeat)

For a while our paths came together
And she read to me from her book of leather
And I saw my own reflection in her eyes
Knowing her to be the wiser of us two
I asked her why do we live like we do?
Not know next where we will go

Repeat Chorus

She looked at me with a kind smile
And said with her own way of clarity and style
You know why we chose the life we do
And the answer is plain and clear to see
And its the same for you as it is for me
Not knowing next where we will go.

Repeat Chorus

To follow my gypsy
To follow my gypsy
To follow my gypsy king
To follow our gypsy
To follow our gypsy
To follow our gypsy kings.
