It's knowing you don't try to bind my freedom with some promise made of gold

That for you my door stays open and our love becomes a simple to A street

And it's knowing we're not shacked by forgotten words and bons

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 I'd be 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 movin' on the back roads

By the rivers of my memory for hours you're just gentle on my mind

Though the wheet fields and the clothes lines

And the junk yards 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 till I'm blind

But not to where I cannot see you moving on the back roads

By the rivers flowin' gentle on my mind

The shadows freek in the autumn winds that make me draw inside myself in silence

Cross legged now I sit and watch the endless chase of leaves across my yard

And layin' down my hair brush I lean back within my window seat and find

That you're moving on the back roads by the rivers of my memory

Evrer smiling ever gentle on my mind

  • Above And Beyond (the Call Of Love)
    "Well I'll give you love that's above and beyond the call of love
    And love's something that money can't buy
    A poor boy's chances for pretty a girl's glances are sometimes very few
    I've got no money but if you'll be my honey here's what I'll offer you..."
  • All I Ever Need Is You
    "Sometimes when I'm down and all alone just like a child without a home
    The love you give me keeps me hanging on honey all I ever need is you
    You're my first love you're my last you're my future you're my past
    And loving you is all that I ask honey all I ever need is you..."
  • All The Time
    "All the time yes darling all the time tenderly and constantly I'll love you
    Every day I'll prove it every way in happiness or in loneliness I'll love you
    Other arms may tempt me but don't let that bother you
    For even if they tempt me I'll never be untrue..."
  • Any Old Way You Do
    "Sometimes you're mean sometimes you ain't
    Sometimes you're a devil sometimes you're a saint
    Sometimes I wish that I could leave and say we're through
    But I love you any old way you do honey I love you any old way you do..."
  • Banks Of The Ohio
    "I asked my love to take a walk take a walk just a little walk
    Down beside where the waters flow down by the banks of the Ohio
    And only say that you'll be mine in no other's arms entwined
    Down beside where the waters flow down by the banks of the Ohio..."
  • Beautiful People
    "La la la la la la la la la la la...
    You've just gotta be one of the most beautiful people in the whole wide world
    It's true it's true it's true and I love you
    You're so easy to make conversation with..."
  • Belle Of The Ball
    "Darling oh darling where are you tonight don't you even miss me at all
    You once danced with me and whispered tenderly that I was the belle of the ball
    The belle of the ball now stands by the wall
    You told me you love me and then let me fall..."
  • Beyond The Sunset
    "Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone
    I'll live in memory's garden dear with happy days we've known
    In spring I'll watch for roses red and shades of lilac blue
    In early fall when the brown leaves fall then I'll catch a glimpse of you..."
