Melissa...

Is it weird that I have THIS song playing on MY blog???

Hubby and I were flipping through a Bed, Bath & Beyond flyer today and I saw a gadget that allows you to record old vinyl's to CD...how cool is that?? Seeing that reminded me of my dad's old records. I can remember going over to one of his friends' house and this song playing....all the time. (maybe it wasn't all the time but I can sure remember it and I was younger than 5 I bet)

So, anyway...it's my little bit of reminiscing of the day for ya! :o) (hey, you'd be proud...I spelled reminiscing correct without looking at dictionary.com first! LOL)

I googled the lyrics...I have NO IDEA what the heck they are singing about...can you tell me?? Something about a gypsy? I'm so confused...oh well, I stay that way most of the time anyhow.... :o)

Melissa

Crossroads, seem to come and go, yeah.
The gypsy flies from coast to coast

Knowing many, loving none,
Bearing sorrow havin' fun,
But back home he'll always run
To sweet Melissa... mmm...

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.
In all his deepest dreams the Gypsy flies
with sweet Melissa... mmm...

Again the morning's 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? (Lord, Lord)
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.


I wonder if my dad has any of those old records....he sure did have a lot if I remember correctly....and good ones too! Lynard Skynard, Allman Brothers, did he have Jimmy Buffet?? I bet he did! Anyway...I can still remember!
