1. Gone So Long

From the recording Out of the Dark


Gypsy woman told me when I was just a child
Trouble gonna follow me, be a good friend of mine
Left my mama crying, made my daddy weep
But the devil smiled as I laid my head down on his lap to sleep and now I'm

Gone so long,
Gone so long,
Gone so long
Can't find my way back home

I once had a man, gave me his last name
Loved me once upon a time but it will never be the same
Gave me a home and a child of my own
Gave me something beautiful that I had never known

Black clouds gather round in the blue skies above
Rain came pouring down to wash away all that I loved
"Nobody's fault but yours" the gypsy woman yelled
And I watched the water wash me down to the bottom of the well
