Here's where we go to kick back after the races with our pals. Pour a tall one, punch a few buttons on the jukebox, and relax...

Need Help With a Song Name & Band

"She was a witchy woman" is part of the lyrics of the song I heard, it is not from the Eagles, it is newer than that, I think.
I thought it might be from Bob Welsh (sp), but can't find any reference to him for the song.

Maybe it was supposed to be "She was a Gypsy woman"?? by Brian Hyland

"Gypsy Woman"

(As recorded by Brian Hyland)
CURTIS MAYFIELD

From nowhere through a caravan
Around a campfire light
A lovely woman in motion with hair as dark as night
Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark
They hypnotized me with love.

She was a gypsy woman
She was a gypsy woman.

She danced around and 'round to a guitar melody
From the fire her face was all aglow
How she enchanted me
Oh how I'd love to hold her near
And kiss and forever whisper in her ear.

I love you gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman.

All through the caravan
She was dancing with all the men
Waiting for the rising sun, everyone was having fun
I hate to see the lady go, knowing she'll never know
That I love her, I love her.

Gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman
I love you gypsy woman.

Cool... I'm a big Bob Welch fan, but can't remember that exact line... could it be Ebony Eyes? Need to listen to those tunes again. Be sure to look for Fleetwood Mac as a possible search criteria because Bob was with them with he penned many of those great early 70s tunes. bp

Thanks Maritime,
It wasn't that song, I have that song save on my computer when you helped me out with that song a couple of years ago. :)

Did a search for that to BP & no reference.

Someone over on the Yellow Bullet helped me find the song.
Here is the song I was trying to think of. Devil Woman by Cliff Richards.

I was driving back to the motel room @ 5:30 AM after being up for almost 24 hours working on a Starbucks remodel project when I heard the song.
I have no idea how I confused the words so much. :?
