Allman BrothersMelissa


I haven't picked out the tab for the lead for Melissa but here is the chord
progression as close as I can get to what Greg Allman plays. The F#m7  and
Emaj7  are a pretty good stretch until you get used to playing them, but they
get easier. Note the two forms of C#m . The first form is played throughout
except in the line 'Pick up your gear and gypsy roll on' in the chorus.

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

Intro: E , F#m7 , Emaj7 , F#m7 

  E       F#m7             Emaj7  F#m7
Verse1:        Crossroads seem to come and go, yeah
 E                             F#m7
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
  A      Bm11       C#m   Bm11
Knowing many loving arms
 E       F#m7           Emaj7   A
bearing sorrow, having fun
 C                          B
but back home he'll always run
           E       F#m7   Emaj7
To sweet Melissa

Same chord progression as verse 1.
Verse 2:    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

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

(same as 1 & 2 until end)
Verse 3:    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                         B
Yes I know that he won't stay
without Melissa
 Emaj7           F#m7
No, no he just won't stay

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