I went to see the gypsy
Staying in a big hotel
He smiled when he saw me coming
An' he said ''Well, well, well''
His room was dark an' crowded
Lights were low and dim
''How are you?'', he said to me
I said it back to him.

I went down to the lobby
To make a small call out
A pretty dancing girl was there
An' she began to shout
''Go on back to see the gypsy
He can move you from the rear
Drive you from your fear
Bring you through the mirror
He did it in Las Vegas
An' he can do it here [ / He can do it here ]''

Outside the lights were shining
On a river of tears
I watched them from the distance
With [the] music in my ears.

I went back to see the gypsy
It was nearly early dawn
The gypsy's door was opened wide
But the gypsy was gone
And that pretty dancing girl
She could not be found
So i watched that sun come rising [up]
From that little Minnesota town
From that little Minnesota town.  up

I went to see the gypsy
Staying in a big hotel
He smiled when he saw me coming
An' he wished well
His room was dark an' crowded
The lights were low and dim
''How are you?'', he asked of me
An' i asked the same of him.

I went down to the lobby
To make a small call out
A pretty dancing girl was there
An' she began to shout
''Go on back to see the gypsy
He can [rid of your fear / drive you from your fear]
He did it in Las Vegas
An' he can do it here''

[Oh the lights were on the river / Outside the lights were shining]
[Shining from outside            / From the river far and wide / Shining all around]
[I contemplated every move       / I watched them from the distance]
[Or at least i tried             / / (-uh-) over town ]

I went back to see the gypsy
It was nearly early dawn
The gypsy's door was opened [wide]
But the gypsy was gone
And that pretty dancing girl
[Oh] She could not be found
So i watched the sun come rising
[In the / From [the / that]] little Minnesota town.  up
