    (Words & music by J. Hartford)
    It's knowin' that your door is always open
    And you path is free to walk
    That makes me tend to keep my sleeping bag rolled up
    And stashed behind your couch

    It's knowin' I'm not shackled
    By forgotten words and bonds
    And the heat stains that have dried up on some lovin'
    That keeps you in the back roads
    By the rivers of my memory
    It keeps you ever gentle on my mind

    It's not clinging to the rocks and ivy
    Planted on their columns mellowed by me
    Or something that somebody said
    Because they thought we'd fit together walking
    It's just knowing that the world will not be cursin'
    Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track 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

    Though the wheat fields and the clothes lines
    And the junk yards and the highways come between us
    And some other woman's cryin' to her mother
    'Cause she turned and I was gone
    I still might run in silence
    Till' the join might stain my face
    And the summer sun might burn me 'till I'm blind
    But not to where I cannot see you
    Walking in the back roads
    By the rivers flowing gently on my mind

    I dip my cup of soup from a gurgling,
    cracking cauldron in some train yard
    I'm barely runnin' cold how
    Have a dirty hat pulled low across my face
    Who cupped hands around the tin cans
    I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
    That you're wavin' from the back roads
    By the rivers of my memory
