Intro - E, F#m7, Emaj7,F#m7 Verse1 E F#m7 Emaj7 F#m7 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 Verse2 Same chord progression as verse 1. 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 E Again the morning comes D again he's on the run A sunbeam shining through his hair B appearing not to have a care C#m (second version) A pick up your gear and gypsy roll on B roll on Verse 3 (same as 1 & 2 until end) 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 F#m7 without Melissa Emaj7 F#m7 No, no he just won't stay repeat and fade (E, F#m7, Emaj7,F#m7) From: J Smith I have some preferences on the playing of the _chords_ in 'Melissa' that differ a bit from his, which I think you'll find easier to play (and maybe even sound better): (excuse the lack of rhythm & timing, but I think you can figure it out)
