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)

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                                                             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)
