Many Grammys on These Sheets

These are the handwritten lyric-sheets from John Hartford's classic, iconic, and unbeatable song- Gentle on My Mind. I have posted performances of it by Hartford before. Glen Campbell made it famous. It won four Grammy's. As Wikipedia describes it:
"Gentle on My Mind" is a song written by John Hartford, which won four 1968 Grammy Awards. Hartford himself won the award for Best Folk Performance and Best Country & Western Song (Songwriter). The other 2 awards Best Country & Western Solo Vocal Performance, Male and Best Country & Western Recording, went to American country music singer Glen Campbell for his version of Hartford's song
Well, last Sunday it won another, this time for the group The Band Perry. The great songs don't die or lose their power.

Here's the video from The Band Perry.
