                [Intro]
| C | % |


[Verse 1]
     C                 Em/B           Am7
It's knowin' that your door is always open
         C/G             Dm
And your path is free to walk
     Dm               C#aug            Dm7/C
That makes me tend to keep my sleeping bag rolled up
    G                   C
And stashed behind your couch
         C               Em/B 
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled
   Am7                 C/G
By forgotten words and bonds
        C                                    Dm
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
     Dm               C#aug
That keeps you in the back roads
       Dm7/C        G
By the rivers of my memory
     Dm             G            C
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind


[Verse 2]
         C               Em/B
It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy
Am7              C/G              Dm
Planted on their columns now that bind me
   Dm                 C#aug       Dm7/C
Or something that somebody said because
                G            C
They thought we fit together walkin'
          C                Em/B 
It's just knowing that the world
            Am7           C/G
Will not be cursing or forgiving
       C                                  Dm
When I walk along some railroad track and find
            Dm            C#aug
That you're movin' on the back roads
       Dm7/C        G
By the rivers of my memory
        Dm                G            C
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind


[Verse 3]
           C                    Em/B
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
        Am7               C/G             Dm
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
         Dm            C#aug         Dm7/C
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
           G                C
'Cause she turned and I was gone
  C                  Em/B 
I still might run in silence
         Am7                C/G
Tears of joy might stain my face
        C                                 Dm
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
    Dm             C#aug
But not to where I cannot see
    Dm7/C          G
You walkin' on the back roads
       Dm             G            C
By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind


[Verse 4]
  C             Em/B
I dip my cup of soup back
       Am7                C/G              Dm
From a gurglin' cracklin' cauldron in some train yard
   Dm               C#aug
My beard a rustlin' coal pile
      Dm7/C            G             C
And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
        C                     Em/B 
Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
     Am7              C/G              Dm
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
            Dm               C#aug
That you're waitin' from the back roads
       Dm7/C        G
By the rivers of my memory
     Dm            G            C
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind
