Gentle on My Mind  Elvis Presley

| C | % |
[Verse 1] 
It's [C]knowin' that your [Em/B]door is always [Am7]open
And your [C/G]path is free to [Dm]walk
Dm C#aug Dm7/C
That makes me tend to keep my sleeping bag rolled up
And [G]stashed behind your [C]couch
And it's [C]knowin' I'm not [Em/B]shackled
By [Am7]forgotten words and [C/G]bonds
And the [C]ink stains that have dried upon some [Dm]line
Dm C#aug
That keeps you in the back roads
By the [Dm7/C]rivers of my [G]memory
That [Dm]keeps you ever [G]gentle on my [C]mind
[Verse 2] 
It's not [C]clingin' to the [Em/B]rocks and ivy
[Am7]Planted on their [C/G]columns now that [Dm]bind me
Dm C#aug Dm7/C
Or something that somebody said because
They thought we [G]fit together [C]walkin'
It's just [C]knowing that the [Em/B]world
Will not be [Am7]cursing or for[C/G]giving
When I [C]walk along some railroad track and [Dm]find
Dm C#aug
That you're movin' on the back roads
By the [Dm7/C]rivers of my [G]memory
And for [Dm]hours you're just [G]gentle on my [C]mind
[Verse 3] 
Though the [C]wheat fields and the [Em/B]clothes lines
And the [Am7]junkyards and the [C/G]highways come be[Dm]tween us
Dm C#aug Dm7/C
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
'Cause she [G]turned and I was [C]gone
I [C]still might run in [Em/B]silence
Tears of [Am7]joy might stain my [C/G]face
And the [C]summer sun might burn me till I'm [Dm]blind
Dm C#aug
But not to where I cannot see
You [Dm7/C]walkin' on the [G]back roads
By the [Dm]rivers flowin' [G]gentle on my [C]mind
[Verse 4] 
I [C]dip my cup of [Em/B]soup back
From a [Am7]gurglin' cracklin' [C/G]cauldron in some [Dm]train yard
Dm C#aug
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
And a [Dm7/C]dirty hat pulled [G]low across my [C]face
Through [C]cupped hands 'round a [Em/B]tin can
I pre[Am7]tend to hold you [C/G]to my breast and [Dm]find
Dm C#aug
That you're waitin' from the back roads
By the [Dm7/C]rivers of my [G]memory
Ever [Dm]smilin', ever [G]gentle on my [C]mind
