Intro: E F#m7 G#m(13-) F#m7 Verse1 E F#m7 G#m7 F#m7 Crossroads seem to come and go yeah E F#m7 The gypsy flies from coast to coast A Bm7 A/C# D Knowing many loving none E F#m G#m A bearing sorrow having fun C B but back home he'll always run E F#m7 G#m7 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
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)
