OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
It's knowing that your door is always open
And your path is free to walk

Left allemande your corner, come home a dosado
The men star left now
Turn thru at home, with the corner allemande
Swing your own and promenade
You're moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
For hours you're just gentle on my mind


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, 1/2 way round the ring
Down the middle square thru go 4
4 hands and then, right & left thru my friend
Pass thru, trade by, swing thru the outside two
Boys you trade, turn thru somehow
Left allemande and promenade
You're moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
For hours you're just (gentle on my mind)


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
The wheat fields & clotheslines & junk cars
And the highways come between us
And some other woman's crying to her mother
Cause she turned and I was gone

Allemande and weave
I stood in rain in silence till the doorknob stained my face
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walking
On the backroads by the rivers flowing gentle on my mind


TAG

*You're moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
For hours you're just gentle on my mind


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'll keep you on the backroads
By the rivers of my memory
Ever smiling, ever gentle on my mind

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
And it's knowing I'm not shackled
By forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
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 forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you are moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
And for hours just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junkyards and the highways come between us
And some other woman 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 'til I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the backroads
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

I dip my cup of soup back from the gurglin'
Cracklin' caldron in some train yard
My beard a roughning 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 backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
Ever smilin' ever gentle on my mind

Lyrics by John Hartford.
Recorded by Glen Campbell.
