From the album Jeff Powers

Heard Ani DiFranco on NPR and thought she was really helping the girls find their voice and place in rock music...this is more a tribute the rocker girls than about Ani though

Lyrics

GYPSY GIRL(ode to ani difranco)© 2003 Jeff Powers music/lyrics

She shaved her head you know
Wrapped a bandana halo
Put Saturn's rings thru her nose
Wears a jean jacket like a saffron robe

She gives it away everyday
Tears her soul out on the stage
Her virgin heart's never been tamed
She don't even know my name

Gypsy girl you've got my vote
Cause you play your heart out you're all about soul
Some people get you and others don't
Cause you're taking chances you're living bold
Hey gypsy girl you know you are the most

She writes poetry all day
Hangs out in a cafe
Fights wars on an ink stained page
Plays the guitar like she crazed

I bet it's not the only thing she shaves
Been tattooed like a maze
Pierced and prodded in every part
She really is far out

Gypsy girl you've got my vote
Cause you play your heart out you're all about soul
Some people get you and others don't
Cause you're taking chances you're living bold
Hey gypsy girl you know you are the most

She don't write no holy water pop
Only her celestial thoughts
Inner visions dancing free
Through her rainbow dreams

While angel winged lovers intertwine in the night
She labors by electric candle light
Discovering psalms from the other side
She really blows my mind

Gypsy girl you've got my vote
Cause you play your heart out you're all about soul
Some people get you and others don't
Cause you're taking chances you're living bold
Hey gypsy girl you know you are the most
Hey gypsy girl you know you are the most
Hey gypsy girl you know you are the most
