"It's Not My Cross to Bear" is a song by the Allman Brothers Band written by Gregg Allman that was released on their 1969 debut album. The song was written about a former lover that Gregg knew [1]. It was also one of the first songs Gregg introduced to the group. [2]. The song was often performed live in conjunction with Spencer Davis' "Don't Want You No More" due to the way the record was produced. In 1986, Gregg recorded an arrangement for his record, "I'm No Angel."
