Chords defined at the end.

INTRO:  G  Gmaj7  G6   Gmaj7

     G                 Gmaj7
It's knowing that your door is always 
G6            Gmaj7           Am   Dmmaj7 Am7 Dmmaj7
open and your path is free to walk
     Am               Dmmaj      
that makes me tend to leave my sleeping 
Am7               D7                  G     Gmaj7  G9  G
bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch
         G               Gmaj7           G6
And it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and 
Gmaj7         G                    Gmaj7           Am  Dmmaj7 Am7 Dmmaj7
bonds and the ink stains that have dried upon some line
      Am              Dmmaj7    
That keeps you in the backroads by the 
Am7          D7          Am             
rivers of my mem'ry, that keeps you ever 
D7           G    Gmaj7  G9  G 
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 think we fit together walkin'.
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 backroads by the 
Rivers of my mem'ry, and for hours you're 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 be 'till 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' cauldron in some trainyard;
My beard a roughning coal pile and a 
Dirty had 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 memory, ever smilin' ever
Gentle on my mind.

G:     x32010
Gmaj7: x32000
C6:    x322x0 (I use the finger on the G string to mute the B string. 
C9:    x32030       It makes for a faster change between the Cmaj7 and C6)
Am:    xx0231
Am7:   xx0211
D7:    320001

I play in C, not only for my voice but because it plays better
