[Intro]
D

[Verse 1]
       D
It's knowing that your door is always open
                                     Em
and your path is free to walk,
         A
That makes me tends to leave my sleeping bag rolled up
                                        D
and stashed behind your couch.

[Verse 2]
         D
It's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bars
                                                                        Em
and the ink stains that have dried upon some lines,
        A
that keeps you on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
                                                    D
and keeps you ever gentle on my mind.

[Verse 3]
             D
It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy, planted on the columns,
               Em
now that binds me;
     A
or something that somebody said
                                                          D
because they thought we fit together walkin'.

[Verse 4]
              D
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursed or forgiven
                                                                  Em
when I walk along some railway track and find
                  A
that you're waiting on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
                                                       D
for hours, you're just gentle on my mind.

[Verse 5]
                   D
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines and the junkyards
                                       Em
and the highways come between us
                 A
and some other woman's crying to her mother 'cause she turned
                 D
and I was gone.

[Verse 6]
            D
Well, I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
                                                                     Em
and the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind.
       A
But not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the back roads
                                                      D
by the rivers flowing gentle on my mind.

[Verse 7]
           D
Well, I dip my cup of soup back from a gurgling bubbling cauldron
              Em
in some train yard;
       A
my beard rough and the coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low
                 D
'cross my face.

[Verse 8]
               D
Through cupped hand, drivin' tin can,
                                                             Em
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
                  A
that you're waiving on the back roads by the rivers of my memory,
                                                 D
ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind.

[Outro]
