Gentle On My Mind

It's knowing that your door is always open

And your path is free to walk

That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag rolled up

And stashed behind your couch

It's knowing I'm not shackled

By forgotten words and bonds

Or the ink stains that have dried upon some line

That keeps you in the back roads

By the rivers of my memory

That 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 fit together walking

It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing

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


Thouh the wheat fields and the clothes lines

And the junkyards and the highways come between us

And some other woman's crying' to her mother

'Cause 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

Crackling cauldron in some train yard

My beard a roughening coal pile

And dirty hat pulled low across my face

Through cupped hands around the tin cans

I pretend to hold you to my breast and find

That you're waving from the back roads

By the rivers of my memory

Ever smiling ever gentle on my mind.
