[INTRO]
C#

[VERSE]
     C#                   
It's knowing that your door is always open
                          Ebm
And your path is free to walk
      Ebm                         Ab
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
  Ab                              C#
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch

          C#
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
C#
By forgotten words and bonds
C#                                       Ebm
And the ink stains that are dried upon some line
Ebm
That keeps you on the backroads
                    Ab
By the rivers of my memory
       Ebm           Ab          C#
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

[VERSE]
          C#
It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
C#                                  Ebm
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Ebm
Or something that somebody said
  Ebm                     Ab             C#
Because they thought we fit together walking

C#
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
C#
Or forgiving when I walk along 
C#                      Ebm
Some railroad track and find
 Ebm
That you're moving on the backroads
                    Ab
By the rivers of my memory
       Ebm                 Ab            C#
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

[VERSE]
C#
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
C#                                         Ebm
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
Ebm
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
        Ab               C#
Cause she turned and I was gone

C#
I still might run in silence 
C#
Tears of joy might stain my face
C#                                          Ebm
And the summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind
Ebm
But not to where 
                                 Ab
I cannot see you walkin' on the backroads
         Ebm             Ab          C#
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

[VERSE]
C#
I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin'
C#                           Ebm
Cracklin' cauldron in some train yard
Ebm
My beard a roughnin' coal pile, and
 Ebm                 Ab            C#
A dirty hat pulled low across my face

C#
Through cupped hands 'round the tin can
                                       Ebm
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
            Ebm
That you're waiting from the backroads
                    Ab
By the rivers of my memories
        Ebm         Ab           C#
Ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind
C#
Gentle on my mind
C#
You are gentle on my mind
