About the Song
"Gentle on My Mind" is a song that was written and originally recorded by John Hartford & released in 1967 on his 2nd studio album, "Earthwords & Music". Hartford composed the song after watching Doctor Zhivago in 1966, as he was inspired by the film & his own personal experiences. The lyrics described the reminiscences of lost love of a man as he travels thorough the country. The following year, Hartford released the song as a single on RCA Records.
The song was picked up by Glen Campbell & released later in 1967 on Campbell's "Gentle on My Mind" album.
