E                     A6                        Emaj7      A6
Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
E                                     A6                  
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
A             E7sus2            C#m/E  E7sus2
Knowing many, loving none,
E       A6            Emaj7    A/E        
Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
Cmaj7                                       B                             E        A6 Emaj7 A6
But back home he'll always run to sweet melissa... mmm...

E                         A6                              Emaj7                  A6
Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
E                                 A6
And no one knows the gypsy's name
A       E7sus2              C#m/E    E7sus2      
No one hears his lonely sigh,
E              A6            Emaj7    A6      
There are no blankets where he lies.
Cmaj7                                                      B                 
In all his deepest dreams the gypsy flies 
             E                        A6   Emaj7   A6
with sweet melissa... mmm...

E A6  Emaj7 A6   (repeat 2x)

Again the morning's come,
Again he's on the run,
Sunbeams shining through his hair,
Appearing not to have a care.
C#m                                                             A       B
Well, pick up your gear and gypsy roll on, roll on.

E                           A6                     Emaj7    A6
Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (lord, lord)
E                            A6
Will you hide the dead man's ghost,
A          E7Ssus2              C#m/E     E7sus2
Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
E                      A6        Emaj7        A6
Or will his spirit roll away? 

Cmaj7                                   B                     E     A6 
But I know that he won't stay without melissa.
Cmaj7                                   B                     E     A6   Emaj7  A6
Yes I know that he won't stay without melissa.

E A6 Emaj7 A6 (repeat until end)

Sorry, the chords didn't really line up with the lyrics as I had them...

That's alright, that's what listening to the album is for. This sounds more right to me than the others after playing all of them along with the album. Thanks!
