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
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)
