Campbell Glen – Gentle On My Mind tab
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. Frank 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
