C#m            B    G#m              F#m           A
Crank her over once again - Put your face into the wind
E            B                       A
Find another road where you're never been.
           C#m      B  G#m   F#m            A
Sing that 2-wheeled melody - The highway symphony
E                B           A
You know, she'll never understand.
      C#m  C#m/B  A       B               G#m
Gypsy Rider       sing    Your 2-wheeled symphony
F#m              A       B     C#m
You know there's nothing to explain.
                         A     B             G#m
She should have known by now - You're just a vagabond
F#m           A         B   C#m
You may never pass this way again.
                    B   G#m    F#m                A
All the writings on the wall - The paper all must fall
E            B                  A
Your only as good as your word remains
        C#m         B  G#m   F#m                A
You can take it out if you - decide to follow through
E                  B                        A
Just take what you earn and leave what remains.
      C#m   C#m/B  A      B             G#m
Gypsy Rider        sing   Your 2-wheeled symphony
F#m              A       B     C#m
You know there's nothing to explain.
                         A     B             G#m
She should have known by now - You're just a vagabond
F#m           A         B   C#m
You may never pass this way again.
