by Allman Brothers Band
crossroads, they seem to come and go
the gypsy flies from coast to coast

knowing many, loving none
sharing sorrows, having fun
but back home he'll always run
to sweet Melissa...

a freight train, each car looks the same, all the same
and no one knows the gypsy's name

no one hears his lonely sighs
there are no blankets where he lies
aboard his deep dreams the Gypsy flies
with sweet melissa...

again the morning's come
again he's on the run
sunbeams shine through his hair
appearing not to have a care
well, take off your gear and Gypsy roll on, roll on.

freight train will you ever be the same
will you hide the dead man's ghost,
or will he lie beneath the clay
or will his spirit float away

lord i know but i won't stay without melissa
yes i know that he won't stay without melissa
