Lyrics to "Gentle On My Mind" song by Glen Campbell: It's knowing that your door is always open And your path is free to walk That makes me tend to leave. That keeps you in the backroads 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 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 backroads By the rivers of my memory And for hours you're just gentle on my mind.

This is Campbell's folksiest album, albeit with string orchestra accompaniment, as he covers "Bowling Green," "Mary in the Morning," and the title tune, and you get to hear him do a solo guitar and voice number, his own "Just Another Ma. Even the most overproduced stuff here, "You're My World" and Rod McKuen's "The World I Used to Know," come off well, and Campbell is in excellent voice throughout, most especially on a wonderfully restrained and beautiful rendition of Roy Orbison's "Crying
