Gypsies, vagabonds, fools, the ferry and something about a shoe or whatever I have no idea, what is this even....

Please work your magic and help me think of this song, even though you'll pretty much have nothing to go on.

There's this song from a distant memory that sprung up while I was having a conversation with my sister. And, after much ranting about it, she's finally gotten this inkling of a feeling about this song, too, but can't think of it either.
It was most likely by a female vocalist. And when I say most likely, I mean it was either by a woman, or a man who sound astonishingly like one.
The overall theme had something to do with gypsies. Now, this is the hard part. This is just a feeling. My sister says "vagabond" better describes the feeling of the song. But I vaguely remember something about a poor girl trying to find food, or maybe a place to sleep, I don't know.
The lyrics were in a narrative sort of fashion
It was vaguely folky. I remember a very rhythmic acoustic guitar [maybe]. But it wasn't really celtic folky, nothing like Lorena McKennit
The last time I heard it was about 2001, or there abouts.
I have this feeling that it was by this normal rock-esque band who happened to do this one song in this folkish fashion, but this may be completely off.
