about

In memory of the late Gregg Allman, a cover of his song Melissa. It happened to be an unfortunate coincidence that I was already covering this song by the time he passed, so there is no better way to honor his passing.

lyrics

Crossroads, seem to come and go
The gypsy flies from coast to coast
Knowing many, loving none
Bearing sorrow, having fun
But back home he'll always run
To sweet Melissa

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
In all his deepest dreams the gypsy flies
With sweet Melissa

Again, the mornings come
Again, he's on the run
Sunbeams shining through his hair
Appearing not to have a care
Well, pick up your gear and gypsy roll on
Roll on

Crossroads, will you ever let him go
Or will you hide the dead man's ghost
Or will he lie beneath the clay
Or will his spirit roll away
But I know that he won't stay
Without Melissa
Yes I know that he won't stay
Without Melissa
