You can be a good Christian. I am good christian. I have four babies and I'm so excited to see my baby and I'm so proud of my life. I have a new teacher and I am so excited that she is coming to Ogden middle school and be a teacher here she is a great teacher to me. The only thing I can do is make a new song but I don't know if I can get it right.

Wow, every time I hear this it makes me wonder not just how great this band is, but how incredible they would be had Duane survived. As for me, my brother turns 60 on 4/16 and although he's derelict in many ways... he's still my brother! I miss his comradeship! RICK H.

At a show in Pittsburgh Gregg disclosed that there was no Melissa. She was a tune Duane wrote about being on the road. She was a gypsey soul that could be.

Difficult to sing the song along to while staying in tune

Extremely challenging for The Allman Brothers Band to sing of a woman have the beautiful name "Melissa" in that era. I say this because a three syllable uncommon name is extremely difficult
