Gentle on My Mind
Composer: John Hartford

Gentle on My Mind was performed by Robert Hunter in 2002.

Donna Jean Thatcher (later Godchaux) was one of the backing singers on the 1969 Elvis Presley recording of the song.

Gentle On My Mind was written by John Hartford and released on a single and LP in 1967. It was covered by Glen Campbell and the success of his single release of the song in 1968 led to a proliferation of cover versions. Covers by Aretha Franklin, Dean Martin and Patti Page also had chart success.
