             Melissa - Allman Brothers Band (Gregg Allman and Steve Alaimo, 1968)
Chorded By: Skidaddy, Esq., G.Q.

4/4 TIME @ 84 BPM (4 min. 6 sec.) in 'A'.

*** Original fades out @ end, but I just hold the final 'E' chord when
    playing live. According to Gregg, this was Duane's favorite song of his.
