Inhertiting complex type in XML Schema

I have xml schema as below.

with this above schema, i have to define address tag in my xml document

I am not able to define address tag elements in the order of line1, line2, city, zip, state, country.
How should I change my xml schema so that I can declare elements in free form. I tried using 'all' instead of sequence but it is not allowing in inheriting of xml schema..
I read from RMH book (Page 48) that "Only single elements may be used in an all group; it can't include other groupings like sequence or all"
Please help me, how can I define my schema to allow flexibility of any order of address tag?
Thanks in advance.
