E A6 Emaj7 A6Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
E A6 The gypsy flies from coast to coast
A E7sus2 C#m/E E7sus2Knowing many, loving none,
E A6 Emaj7 A/E Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
Cmaj7 B E A6 Emaj7 A6But back home he'll always run to sweet melissa... mmm...
E A6 Emaj7 A6Freight train, each car looks the same, all the same.
E A6And 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 A6with sweet melissa... mmm...
E A6 Emaj7 A6 (repeat 2x)
EAgain the morning's come,
DAgain he's on the run,
ASunbeams shining through his hair,
BAppearing not to have a care.
C#m A BWell, pick up your gear and gypsy roll on, roll on.
E A6 Emaj7 A6Crossroads, will you ever let him go? (lord, lord)
E A6Will you hide the dead man's ghost,
A E7Ssus2 C#m/E E7sus2Or will he lie, beneath the clay,
E A6 Emaj7 A6Or will his spirit roll away?
Cmaj7 B E A6 But I know that he won't stay without melissa.
Cmaj7 B E A6 Emaj7 A6Yes I know that he won't stay without melissa.
E A6 Emaj7 A6 (repeat until end)
