Lyrics Gentle on My Mind

It's knowin' that your door is always open
And you path is free to walk mmh mmh
That makes me tend to keep my sleeping bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch
It's knowin'
I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried up on some line
That keeps you in the back roads by the rivers of my memory
It keeps you ever gentle on my mind
It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
Planted on their columns now that bind me
Or something that somebody said
Because they thought we'd fit together walking
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursin'
Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you're moving on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind yeah
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines and the junk yards and the highways
Come between us mmh
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother 'cos she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
And the summer sun might burn me 'till I'm blind
But not to where
I cannot see you walking in the back roads
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind
I dip my cup of soup back from a gurgling cracking cauldron in some train yard
My beard a roughlin' coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands around a tin can
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find mmh mmh
That you're wavin' from the back roads by the rivers of my memory
Ever smiling ever gentle on my mind
