The following is Gentle on My Mind, performed by Glen Campbell:

You really need a banjo to make this happen, but the progression seems to work well.

The “F” chord does not use the B note on the D string

The Em+C uses the C note on the B string.

Sorry I did not use the template...I'm not very skilled.

My thanks to Rod for working over the phone to figure this out.

C                      Em+C            Am
It's knowing that your door is always open

                          Dm  Faug  F  G
and your path is free to walk
   
      Dm               Faug
That makes me tend to leave my

          F                   G                 C   Em+C Am   G
sleepin' bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch

            C               Em+C 
And it's knowin' I'm not shackled by

      Am
forgotten words and bonds

         C                    Em+C            Dm Faug F  G
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line

      Dm                Faug             F            G
That keeps you in the backroads by the rivers of my mem'ry

        Dm            G           C  Em+C  Am   G
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

          C               Em+C             Am
It's not clingin' to the rocks and ivy planted

                           Dm         Faug  F  G
on their columns now that bind me

     Dm            Faug           F
Or somethin' that somebody said because they thought

    G             C      Em+C   Am  G
we fit together walkin'

              C             Em+C              Am
It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing or forgiving

        C               Em+C              Dm    Faug  F  G
When I walk along some railroad track and find

              Dm             Faug             F          G
That you're movin' on the backroads by the rivers of my mem'ry

         Dm                 G           C      Em+C    Am   G
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

            C                      Em+C
Though the wheat fields and the clotheslines

           Am                             Dm      Faug F G
And the junkyards and the highways come between us

           Dm           Faug           F
And some other woman's crying to her mother

            G               C  Em+C Am G
cause she turned and I was gone

    C                 Em+C              Am
I still might run in silence, tears of joy might stain my face

          C               Em+C             Dm   Faug  F  G
And the summer sun might burn me till I'm blind

    Dm              Faug            F                G
But not to where I cannot see you walkin' on the backroads

         Dm             G          C    Em+C Am G
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

   C               Em+C                  
I dip my cup of of soup back from

     Am                                  Dm       Faug  F  G
a gurglin', cracklin' cauldron in some train yard

    Dm               Faug             F                   
My beard a roughnin' coal pile and a dirty hat 

        G              C   Em+C  Am  G
pulled low across my face

          C                  Em+C
Through cupped hands round a tin can

    Am                                  Dm Faug F G 
I pretend to hold you to my breast and find

              Dm              Faug             F            G
That you're wavin' from the backroads by the rivers of my mem'ry

       Dm             G             C      Em+C    Am   G
Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind
