MELISSA- Allman Brothers


E  F#m  G#m  F#m   E  F#m  G#m  F#m

  E       F#m              G#m   F#m 
Crossroads seem to come and go, yeah
 E                             F#m 
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
  A      Bm         C#m   Bm
Knowing many, loving none
 E       F#m            G#m  F#m
Bearing sorrow, having fun
 C                          B  (n.c.)
But back home he'll always run
           E      F#m  G#m  F#m 
To sweet Melissa        mmmm

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
Lord, in deepest dreams the gypsy flies
To sweet Melissa, mmmmm

Again the morning comes
Again he's on the run
Sunbeam shining through his hair
Appearing not to have a care
C#m                          A        B       (n.c.)
Pick up your gear and gypsy roll on, roll on

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#m
Without Melissa

C                         B             E    F#m
Yes I know that he won't stay without Melissa
 G#m            F#m 
No, no he just won't stay

E  F#m  G#m  F#m    (repeat and fade)

     E  F#m  G#m  A  B  Bm  C#m  C  D
E    0   2    4   5  7  7    9   8  10          
B    0   2    4   5  7  7    9   8  10           
G#   0   1    3   5  7  6    8   8  10          
E    0   2    4   5  7  7    9   8  10              
B    0   x    x   5  7  x    x   8  10             
E    0   2    4   5  7  7    9   8  10

NOTE:  This song may or may not be in this tuning, I'm not sure.  But I 
think it's easier and more fun playing it this way than in standard.
