About this tab version
One of the first songs I learned with barre chords. If you're a novice and want to learn barre chords, this song will help as its not so difficult as to weaken your determination. Was this info helpful? Yes No
      C     Cmaj7     C6      Dm    DmMaj7   Dm7      G7      Co     Dm6     G7     CMaj7

Where the lines end with an open "C" chord, followed by alternating CMaj7 and C play the open CMaj7.
Return to the inverse C chords with the start of the next line.

[Verse 1]
C                      Cmaj7          C6            Cmaj7           Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
It's knowing that your door is always open and your path is free to walk                               
     Dm               DmMaj7            Dm7               G7                  Co    CMaj7  Co  CMaj7
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch.                 
C                       Cmaj7          C6               Cmaj7
And its knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds,
C                            Cmaj7            Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
and the ink stains that have dried up on some line.                                
     Dm               DmMaj7              Dm7          Dm6
That keeps you in the backroads, by the rivers of my mem'ry,
     Dm        Dm7   Dm6   G7    Co     CMaj7  Co  CMaj7
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind.                                         

[Verse 2]
C                       Cmaj7         C6               Cmaj7            Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
Its not clinging to the rocks and ivy planted on their columns now that bind me           
                      DmMaj7        Dm7                   G7           Co    CMaj7   Co   CMaj7
Or something that somebody said because they thought we fit together walkin'                
C                         Cmaj7             C6            Cmaj7
Its just knowing that the world will not be cursing or forgiving
       C               Cmaj7              Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
When I walk along some railroad track and find.             
                          DmMaj7             Dm7          Dm6
That you're moving on the backroads by the rivers of my memory
        Dm     Dm7        Dm6    G7    Co    CMaj7   Co   CMaj7 
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind.                     

[Verse 3]
C                               Cmaj7                C6                Cmaj7           Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
Through the wheatfields and the clotheslines and the junkyards and the highways come between us.          
                     DmMaj7          Dm7               G7              Co  CMaj7  Co   CMaj7
And some other woman crying to her mother cause she turned and I was gone.                  
C                     Cmaj7            C6                 Cmaj7
I still might run in silence, tears of joy might stain my face,
               C         Cmaj7           Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6        
and the summer sun might burn me till Im blind             
                   DmMaj7           Dm7           Dm6
But not to where I cannot see you walkin on the backroads
       Dm      Dm7    Dm6     G7      Co    CMaj7   Co   CMaj7
by the rivers flowing gentle on my mind.                        

[Verse 4]
C               Cmaj7               C6                  Cmaj7            Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
I dip my cup of soup back from some gurglin', cracklin' cauldron in some train yard.          
                    DmMaj7             Dm7             G7            Co   CMaj7   Co   CMaj7
My beard a roughnin coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low across my face.                     
C                            Cmaj7      C                   Cmaj7            Dm  DmMaj7  Dm7  Dm6
Through cupped hands round a tin can, I pretend to hold you to my breast and find               
                           DmMaj7             Dm7          Dm6         Dm     Dm7  Dm6    G7    Co
That you're wavin from the backroads by the rivers of my memory Ever smilin ever gentle on my mind.
