[Verse 1]

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.

[Verse 2]

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...

Didn't Greg write and play this. I think Duane was already gone to the giant peach wagon in the sky. This is great, though. Very nice job!
