GYPSY DAVY.
Sung by Archy Hughes.
There was a lord, a high-born lord,
Who courted a high-born lady; She lived in a palace all so grand,
Till she met with, the Gypsy Davy.
Chorus.
Elopements now are all the go, They set the darkeys crazy;
Take warning alL both great and small, And beware of the Gypsy Davy! *
This lord he was a fine young man,
And he set this lady crazy; , So she packed up her duds, and away«she ran
Along with the Gypsy Davy.
Elopements now, etc.
Her parients raved, and tore their hair,
When they come for to miss that 'ere baby;
And then to think of that sweet-born baby, None knew but the Gypsy Davy!
Elopements now, etc.
