Gentle on my mind

Glen Campbell



 GG7
It's knowing that your door is always open
 GAm
and your path is free to walk,
 Am7
that makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
 D7G
rolled up and stashed behind your couch.
 G
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
 G7
by forgotten words and bonds
 GAm
and the ink stains that have dried if on some line,
 Am7
that keeps you in the backroads
by the rivers of my mem'ry
 AmD7G
that keeps you ever gentle on my mind.
It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
planted on the columns now that binds me,
or something that somebody said
because they thought we fit together walking.
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track
and find that you are moving on the backroads
by the rivers of my mem'ry
and for hours you're just gentle on my mind.

GENTLE ON MY MIND
(anybody know who wrote it?)
 GG7
It's knowing that your door is always open
 GAm
and your path is free to walk,
 Am7
that makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
 D7G
rolled up and stashed behind your couch.
 G
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
 G7
by forgotten words and bonds
 GAm
and the ink stains that have dried if on some line,
 Am7
that keeps you in the backroads
by the rivers of my mem'ry
 AmD7G
that keeps you ever gentle on my mind.

It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track
and find that you are moving on the backroads

and for hours you're just gentle on my mind.

I think the song was written by John Hartford in the 1960's. I remember him performing it in concert...before he dedicated his career to the mountain tunes.

The original post only contained the first two verses of the song. I have added the last two verses.

The late and very talented John Hartford was indeed the writer of this song, he performed it many times with Glen Campbell whoof course made it famous.
