  • If you getcha one girl, better get two
    Case you run into Gypsy Lou
    She's a ramblin' woman with a ramblin' mind
    Always leavin' somebody behind
    Hey, 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Gypsy Lou's gone again

    Well, I seen the whole country through
    Just to find Gypsy Lou
    Seen it up, seen it down
    Followin' Gypsy Lou around
    Hey, 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Gypsy Lou's gone again

    Well, I gotta stop and take some rest
    My poor feet are second best
    My poor feet are wearin' thin
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Hey, gone again
    Gypsy Lou's 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's 'round the bend

    Well, seen her up in old Cheyenne
    Turned my head and away she ran
    From Denver Town to Wichita
    Last I heard she's in Arkansas
    Hey, 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Gypsy Lou's gone again

    Well, I tell you what if you want to do
    Tell you what, you'll wear out your shoes
    If you want to wear out your shoes
    Try and follow Gypsy Lou
    Hey, gone again
    Gypsy Lou's 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's 'round the bend

    Well, Gypsy Lou, I been told
    Livin' down on Gallus Road
    Gallus Road, Arlington
    Moved away to Washington
    Hey, 'round the bend
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Gypsy Lou's gone again

    Well, I went down to Washington
    Then she went to Oregon
    I skipped the ground and hopped a train
    She's back in Gallus Road again
    Hey, I can't win
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
    Gypsy Lou's gone again

    Well, the last I heard of Gypsy Lou
    She's in a Memphis calaboose
    She left one too many a boy behind
    He committed suicide
    Hey, you can't win
    Gypsy Lou's gone again
