Melissa   Allman Brothers Band

     [E]      [F#m7]       [Emaj7]         [A]     [Bm11]        [C#m]       [B]     [D]     [C]    [C#m2]                          

Intro - E, F#m7, Emaj7,F#m7


Cr[E]ossroads[F#m7] seem to come and[Emaj7] go, ye[F#m7]ah
T[E]he gypsy flies from coast to c[F#m7]oast
Kn[A]owing m[Bm11]any loving [C#m]arms  [Bm11]
b[E]earing s[F#m7]orrow, having f[Emaj7]un      [A]
b[C]ut back home he'll always r[B]un
To sweet Me[E]lissa   [F#m7]       [Emaj7]

Same chord progression as verse 1.

Freight train, each car looks the same
All the same
and no one knows the gypsy's name
no one hears his lonely sigh
there are no blankets where he lies
and in deepest dreams the gypsy flies
to sweet Melissa


[E]Again the morning comes
[D]again he's on the run
[A]sunbeam shining through his hair
[B]appearing not to have a care
C#m (second version) A
pick up your gear and gypsy roll on
[B]roll on

Verse 3 (same as 1 & 2 until end)
Crossroads, will you ever let him go, No, no, no
or will you hide the dead man ghost
or will he lie beneath the plain
or will his spirit float away
but I know that he won't stay
E F#m7,
without Melissa
[C]Yes I know that he won't s[B]tay
without Melissa
N[Emaj7]o, no he just wo[F#m7]n't stay

repeat and fade (E, F#m7, Emaj7,F#m7)
