Gentle On My Mind

John Hartford

© Glaser Publ, BMI

It's knowing that your door is always open and your path is free to walk
That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag rolled up and stashed behind your couch
And it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
And the ink stains that have dried upon some line
That keeps you in the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

It's not clinging to the rocks and I'd be planted on their columns now that bind 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're moving on the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
And the junk yards and the highways come between us
And some other woman's crying to her mother cause she turned and I was gone
I still might run in silence tears of joy might stain my face
And a summer sun might burn me till I'm blind
But not to where I cannot see you walking on the back roads
By the rivers flowing gentle on my mind

I dipped my cup of soap back from a gurgling crackling caldron in some train yard
My beard a roughen coal pile and a dirty hat pulled low across my face
Through cupped hands round a tin can I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
That you're waitin' from the back roads by the rivers of my mem'ry
Ever smiling ever gentle on my mind

Catch The Wind

Donovan Leitch

© Southern Music, ASCAP

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all around me and to take your hand along the sand
Ah but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky I want to hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I'd look your eyes I'd find
For me to love you now t'would be the sweetest thing t'would make me sing
Ah but I may as well try and catch the wind
[ guitar ]
When rain has hung the leaves with tears I want you near to kill my fears
To help me leave all my blues behind
Standing in your heart is where I want to be and long to be
Ah but I may as well try and catch the wind
[ strings ]
Ah but I may as well try and catch the wind

It's Over

Honeycomb Rodgers

© Honeycomb Music, ASCAP

If time were not a moving thing and I could make it stay
This hour of love we share would always be there'd be no coming day
To shine a morning light make us realize our night is over

When you walk away from me there is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes against the sun that rises o'er the land
I watch you walk away somehow I have to let you go now it's over

If you knew just how I really feel you might return and yet
There are so many times that people have to love and then forget
Though there might have been a way I have to force myself to say it's over
[ strings ]
So I turn my back and turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence tryin' not to think at all
I send my feet before you walk the silence street before you now it's over
It's over

Bowling Green

Terry Slater - Jacqueline Ertel

© Rook Music, BMI

Way down in Bowling Green the prettiest girls I've ever seen
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky to love down in Bowling Green
Bowling Green folks treat you kind better you think your own mind
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky in Bowling Green you walk your own line

Kentucky sunshine makes the heart unfold
It warms your body and I know it touches the soul
The bluegrass is fine Kentucky owns my mind

Fields down in Bowling Green have the softest grass I've ever seen
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky to lie down in Bowling Green
[ strings - dobro ]
Kentucky sunshine makes the heart unfold...

Bowling Green girls treat you right they wear dresses cut country tight
A man in Kentucky sure is lucky he seen the Bowling Green night
A man in Kentucky well he sure is lucky he seen the Bowling Green night
A man in Kentucky well he sure is lucky he seen the Bowling Green night

Just Another Man

Joe Allison - Glen Campbell

© Nashville Music, BMI

I'd like to stay with you for a while but I have promises to keep
I could be happy here with you but I'm a so wild oat to reap
My strength tells me my weakness shows you make me think of coats and ties
Of babies home security and jobs that last from nine to five

I could conjure up the constant state of happiness
But I know that I am just another man
And in knowing that I know that I'll get more or less what I can get
So I'll do what I can

I have many steps to take reckless steps I cannot share
A mountain waits for me to climb and I must climb because it's there

I could conjure up the constant state of happiness...

But if you should not let me go and if you want me as I am
And for a while I'll be a God instead of just another man mhm

You're My World

Carl Sigman - Gino Paoli - Umberto Bindi

© Chappell Co, ASCAP

You're my world you're every breath I take
You're my world you're every move I make
Other eyes see star up in the skies
But for me they shine within your eyes
As the trees reach for the sun above
So my arms reach out to you for love

With your hand resting in mine I feel a power so divine
You're my world you are my night and day
You're my world you're every breath I breathe
If our love ceased to be then it's the end of my world for me
[ strings ]
With your hand resting in mine I feel a power so divine...

World I Used To Know

Rod McKuen

© In Music, ASCAP

Some day in some old familiar rain
Will come along and know my name
And then my shelter will be gone
And I'll have to move along

But till I do I'll stay awhile
And track the hidden country of your smile
Some day the man I used to be
Will come along and call on me

And then because I'm just a man
You'll find my feet are made of sand
But till that time I'll tell you lies
And chart the hidden boundrys of your eyes

Some day the world I used to know
Will come along and lead me go
Then I'll be leaving you behind
For love is just a state of mind

But till that day I'll be your man
And love away your troubles if I can
And till that day I'll be your man
And love away your troubles if I can

Without Her

Harry Nilsson

© Beechwood Music, BMI

I spend the night in a chair
Thinkin' she'll be there but she never comes
And then I wake up and wiped the sleep from my eyes
And I rise to face another day without her

It's just no good anymore when you walk through the door of an empty room
And then you go inside and sat at the table for one
It's no fun when you spend the day without her
We burst the pretty balloon it took us to the Moon
Such a beautiful thing bit it's ended now
But it sounds like a lie if I say I'd rather die than live without her
[ guitar - strings ]
I spend the night in a chair...

Mary In The Morning

Johnny Cymbal - Michael Lendell

© Pamco Music, BMI

Nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the morning
When through a sleepy haze I see her lyin' there
Soft as the rain that falls on summer flowers
Warm as the sunlight shinin' on her golden hair mhm

When I wake and see her there so close beside me
I want to take her in my arms the ache is there so deep inside me

And nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the morning
Chasin' a rainbow in the dream so far away
And when she turns to touch it I kiss her face so softly
My Mary wakes to love another day mhm
My Mary's there in sunny days or stormy weather
She doesn't care cause right or wrong the love we share we share together

And nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the evening
Kissed by the shades of night and starlight on her hair
And as we walk I hold her close beside me
Oh how tomorrows for lifetime we'll share mhm

Nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the morning
Nothing's quite as pretty as Mary in the evening

Love Me As Though There Were No Tomorrow

Harold Adamson - Jimmy McHugh

© Robbins Music, ASCAP

Love me as though there were no tomorrow
Take me out of this world tonight
Take me make me forget my sorrow
So when I wake tomorrow I'll know our love was right

Kiss me as though it were now or never
Teach me all that our heart should know
Just love me as though there were no tomorrow
Oh my darling love me don't ever let me go
[ piano ]
Please love me as though there were no tomorrow
Oh my darling love me don't ever let me go

Crying

Roy Orbison - Joe Melson

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

I was all right for a while I could smile for a while
But I saw you last night you held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say hello
Oh you wished me well you couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you crying over you
Since you said so long left me standing all alone
Alone and crying crying crying crying
It's hard to understand that the touch of your hand
Can start me crying
I thought that I was over you but it's true so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling what can I do for you
No don't love me and I'll always be
Crying over you crying over you
Yes now you're gone but from this moment on
I'll be crying crying oh crying crying
Yeah crying crying over you
