Cher - Gypsys, tramps and thieves

I WAS BORN IN THE WAGON OF A TRAVELLIN' SHOW

La incombustible y siempre despampanante Cher, que hoy cumple 71 años, tuvo su primer nº 1 en USA como cantante en solitario con Gypsys, tramps and thieves (1971), composicion de Bob Stone de cuyo single se vendieron más de un millón de copias y ganó un disco de oro. En el video se puede apreciar en vivo la portentosa voz de contralto de la diva californiana.

Gypsys, tramps and thieves  (lyrics)

I was born in the wagon of a travellin' show
My mama used to dance for the money they'd throw
Papa would do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of doctor good
Gypsys, tramps and thieves
We'd hear it from the people of the town
They'd call us gypsys, tramps and thieves
But every night all the men would come around
And lay their money down
Picked up a boy just south of mobile
Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal
I was sixteen, he was twenty-one
Rode with us to Memphis
And papa woulda shot him if he knew what he'd done
Gypsys, tramps and thieves
We'd hear it from the people of the town
They'd call us gypsys, tramps and thieves
But every night all the men would come around
And lay their money down
I never had schoolin' but he taught me well
With his smooth southern style
Three months later I'm a gal in trouble
And I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh
I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh
She was born in the wagon of a travellin' show
Her mama had to dance for the money they'd throw
Grandpa'd do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of doctor good
Gypsys, tramps and thieves
We'd hear it from the people of the town
They'd call us gypsys, tramps and thieves
But every night all the men would come around
And lay their money down
Gypsys, tramps and thieves
We'd hear it from the people of the town
They'd call us gypsys, tramps and thieves
But every night all the men would come around
And lay their money down
