John Hartford, 1967

     G (320003@1)                              G7It's (320001@1)knowing that your door is always open
         G (320003@1)             Amand (x02210@1)your path is free to walk,
                      Am7that (x02010@1)makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
              D7 (xx0212@1)                Grolled (320003@1)up and stashed behind your couch.
         GAnd (320003@1)it's knowing I'm not shackled
       G7by (320001@1)forgotten words and bonds
        G (320003@1)                                   Amand (x02210@1)the ink stains that have dried if on some line,
                       Am7that (x02010@1)keeps you in the backroads

by the rivers of my mem'ry
      Am (x02210@1)           D7 (xx0212@1)        Gthat (320003@1)keeps you ever gentle on my mind.

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
planted on the 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 you're just gentle on my mind.
