Melissa


by Allman Brothers (Gregory L. Allman/Stephen Alaimo)


 I:	( E - - - / F#m11/E - - - / G#m+5/E - - - / F#m11/E - - - /  x4  //)

Crossroads, seem to come and go
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
Knowing many, loving none,
Bearing sorrow, having fun
But back home he'll always run,
To sweet Melissa

E - - - / F#m11/E - - - / G#m+5/E - - - / F#m11/E - - - / E - - - / F#m11/E - - - /
A - Bm - / C#m - D - / E - F#m - / G#m - A - / Cmaj7 - - - / B - - - // (Intro)

Freight train, each car looks the same
No one knows the gypsy’s' name
No one hears his lonely sighs,
There are no blankets where he lies
All the deepest dreams the gypsy cries
Of sweet Melissa

 B:	Again the morning comes
Again he's on the run
Sunbeam shining through his hair
Appearing not to have a care
Pick up your gear and gypsy roll on, roll on

E - - - / D - - - / A - - - / Bm - - - / C#m - - - / D - - - / B - - - /    //

Crossroads, will you ever let him go?
Will you hide the dead mans' ghost?
Lord, will he lie beneath the clay?
Will his spirit roll away?
Lord, I know he won't stay,
Without Melissa
