      About "Gentle On My Mind"

      Lyrics for Jim Ed Brown - "Gentle On My Mind"

      It's just 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
      And it's knowing I'm not shacked by forgotten words and bons
      And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
      That keeps you in the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
      That keeps you ever gentle on my mind
      It's not clinging to the rocks and I'd be planted on their columns now that binds 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 forgivin'
      When I walk along some railroad track and find
      That you're movin' on the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
      And for hours you're just gentle on my mind
      Though the wheet fields and the clothes lines
      And the junk yards and the highways come between us
      And some other woman cryin' 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 on the back roads
      By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind
      I dipped my cup of soap back from a gurgling crackling caltron in some train yard
      My beard a roughen coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low across my face
      Through cupped hands round a tin can I pretend I hold you to my breast and find
      That you're waving from the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
      Ever smiling ever gentle on my mind
