This song is by Uriah Heep and appears…

I was only seventeen
I fell in love with a gypsy queen
She told me "Hold on"

Her father was the leading man
Said "You're not welcome on our land"
And then as a foe, he told me to go

He took me to a little shack
And put a whip across my back
Then told her "Leave me"

I was out for quite a time
Came back with her on my mind
Sweet little girl, she means all the world

Though I want my gypsy queen
Will she still be torn between
Her father and lover?

One day I will go to him
Strong enough to fight and win
The kind of a man that he'll understand
