Chapter 1: Ballad of the Gypsies

A traditional Gypsy ballad explaining their life on the road

 We are travelling folk we keep travelling on
It's a long lonely road we're travelling down
 One more country - one more town
 One more lonely road to travel down
We are travelling folk, all on our own
With a pack on our back and no place to call home

Through the dirt and dust, through wind and snow
Travelling folk, on we must go
One more country - one more town
One more lonely road to travel down
Though the heat and cold make our young folks old
Loneliness and pain keeps us moving again.

Travelling folk with nowhere to go
The days are so long yet still we go on
One more country - one more town
One more lonely road to travel down
Travelling folk we keep travelling on
Always to find we’re on our own
The pack on our backs our only home

Up with the sun, sleep with the moon
Firelight and starlight on we must go
One more country - one more town
One more lonely road to travel down
Work and toil our only way
Born for tomorrow, yet living today
