Gentle on My Mind - Patti Page (帕蒂·佩奇)

It's knowing you don't try to buy my freedom

With some promise made of gold

 

That for you my door stays open

And our love becomes a simple two way street

 

And it's knowing we're not shackled

By forgotten words and bonds

 

And the ink stains that

Have dried upon some line

 

That keeps you on the back roads

By the rivers of my memory

That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

 

It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy

 

Planted on some column now that binds us

 

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'm drifting through the market place and find

 

That you're moving on the back roads

By the rivers of my memory

And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

 

Well 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 you were gone

 

I still might walk for hours

Tears of joy might stain my face

 

And a summer sun might burn me 'til I'm blind

 

But not to where I cannot see

You moving on the back roads

By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

 

The shutters creek and autumn winds

That make me draw inside myself in silence

 

Cause now I sit and watch

The endless chase of leaves across my yard

 

And laying down my hair brush

I lean back within my window seat and find

 

That your moving on the back roads

By the rivers of my memory ever smiling

 

Ever gentle on my mind
