Green Green Grass Of Home

Misc. Country and Western

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train
 And there to meet me is my mama and papa;
 Down the road I look and there runs Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries,
 it's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

 Yes, they'll all come to meet me arms a-reaching, smiling sweetly;
 It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

The old house is still standing, though the paint is cracked and dry,
 And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on;
 Down the lane I walk and withmy sweet Mary, hair of gold an  lips like
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

(spoken) (same progression)
Then I awake and look around me at the four gray walls that surround me and I
realize that I was only dreaming. For there's a guard and there's a sad old
padre. Arm and arm we'll walk at daybreak - again I'll touch the green, green
grass of home

 Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree;
As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass of home.
