Thanks to dandhjohn, I now have the proper names for the chords. Thanks alot once again.
(Original Message):I’m not sure what to call some of these chords, so I just see 
what they look the 
closest like and put a star beside them. Here is how they are played:

       E A D G B E
A6:   [0 4 4 2 0 0]
B6:   [0 6 6 4 0 0]
D6:   [0 5 4 4 3 0]
E6:   [0 7 6 6 4 0]
D*:   [5 5 7 7 7 5] (D on 5th fret)

Note: Please use the chords that I've listed above NOT the highlighted ones by 
ultimate-guitar. Thanks
Intro:

E A6 B6 A6

Verse:

E         A6                 B6      A6
Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
E                      A6                  
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
A       D6            E6  D6
Knowing many, loving none,
E       A6            B6    A6        
Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
C                           B             E        A6   B6 A6
But back home he'll always run to sweet melissa... mmm...

E            A6                   B6     A6                  
Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
E                           A6          
And no one knows the gypsy's name
A       D6              E6    D6      
No one hears his lonely sigh,
E              A6            B6    A6      
There are no blankets where he lies.
C                                     B                 
In all his deepest dreams the gypsy flies 
             E        A6   B6   A6
with sweet melissa... mmm...

E A6  B6 A6   (repeat 2x)

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



E          A6                     B6    A6
Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (lord, lord)
E                            A6
Will you hide the dead man's ghost,
A          D6              E6     D6
Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
E            A6        B6        A6
Or will his spirit roll away? 

C                          B (no strum) E     A6 
But I know that he won't stay without melissa.
C                          B (no strum) E     A6   B6  A6
Yes I know that he won't stay without melissa.

E A6 B6 A6 (repeat until end)

Chords are completely wrong see the other chords tab, the version 2 one, that has more or less the right chords, and what they got wrong is corrected for in the comments.

First of all this is the "version 2 one" and unless your tone deaf this is right. Don't follow the chords that ultimate-guitar puts in blue, follow what I tabbed. Listen and watch the Allman Brothers, this is exactly how they play it.
