Capo di fret 6

[INTRO]
G

[VERSE 1]
        G                                                Em
It's knowing that your door is always open
                 G                       Am
And your path is free to walk
         Am
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
                        D                              G
Rolled up and stashed behind your couch
              G
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
         Em                         G
By forgotten words and bonds
               G                                                     Am
And the ink stains that are dried upon some line
         Am
That keeps you on the back roads
           Am               D
By the rivers of my memory
           Am                   D                   G
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

[VERSE 2]
              G
It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
Em                     G                           Am
Planted on their columns now that bind me
      Am
Or something that somebody said
Am                                        D               G
Because they thought we fit together walking
             G                                                    Em
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
           G                                                                         Am
Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
                    Am
That you're moving on the back roads
           Am                 D 
By the rivers of my memory
               Am                     D                    G
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

[VERSE 3]
                      G
Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
              Em                        G                          Am
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
                 Am
And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
                   D                     G
'Cause she turned and I was gone
    G                                              Em                          G
I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
              G                                                     Am
And the summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind
            Am                                                                 D
Oh but not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the back roads
            Am                  D                  G
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

[VERSE 4]
    G                                               Em
I dip my cup of soup back from a gurglin'
                 G                       Am
Cracklin' cauldron in some train yard
      Am
My beard a rustlin' cold towel
                           D                      G
A dirty hat pulled low across my face (across my face)
               G
Through cupped hands 'round the tin can
         Em                     G                        Am
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
                    Am
That you're waiting from the back roads
            Am               D
By the rivers of my memories
          Am             D                     G 
Ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind

[OUTRO]

Gentle on my mind
                                  Em    G
You are gentle on my mind
Em      G
Ooh yeah
