Gentle On My Mind    (ESP 0738)  Bill Harrison

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK



Circle Left
* Itís knowing that your door is always open
and your path is free to walk
Left Allemande that corner, Turn the partner by the right,
Allemande the corner, Weave the ring
** Itís knowing Iím not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
Swing that girl and Promenade
That keeps you on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
Ever smiliní, ever gentle on my mind.

FIGURE



Heads [sides] Pass the Ocean, Turn Thru
Make a Left Hand Star, Heads [sides] back to the middle,
Square Thru three hands around
Slide Thru, Square Thru 3/4 Ďround, Swing that girl
Youíre moving on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
Ever smiliní, ever gentle on my mind.

CLOSER



Four boys Promenade and travel one time around,
Swing that girl
Join all of your hands, Circle left in a ring
Allemande Left and Weave the ring.
Itís knowing Iím not shackled by forgotten words and bonds
Swing that girl and Promenade
That keeps you on the back roads by the rivers of my memory
Ever smiliní, ever gentle on my mind.

TAG



Ever smiliní, ever gentle on my mind.

ADDITIONAL LYRICS



* I dip my cup of soup back from the gurgliní, crackliní cauldron
in some train yard.

** Through cupped hands, Ďround a tin cup, I pretend to hold you close.
