Green Green Grass Of Home  Misc. Country and Western










The [C]old home town looks the [C7]same as I [F]step down from the [C]train
[C]And there to meet me is my mama and [G7]papa;
[Dm7]Down [G7]the [C]road I look and [C7]there runs Mary[F], hair of gold and [Dm7]lips like cherries,
[C]it's good to touch the [G7]green, [Dm7]green [G7]grass of [C]home.

REFRAIN
[Dm7]Yes, [G7]they’ll [C]all come to [C7]meet me [F]arms a-reaching, [Cdim]smiling sweetly;
[Dm7]It's [C]good to touch the [G]green, green [Dm7]grass [G7]of [C]home.

The [C]old house is still standing,[C7] though the [F]paint is cracked and [C]dry,
[C]And there's that old oak tree that I used to [G7]play on;
[Dm7]Down [G7]the [C]lane I walk and with[C7]my sweet Mary,[F] hair of gold an [Dm7] lips like
cherries
It's [C]good to touch the [G7]green, green [Dm7]grass [G7]of [C]home[F].[C]

(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

FINAL REFRAIN
[Dm7]Yes, [G7]they’ll [C]all come to [C7]see me  [F]in the shade of that [Cdim]old oak tree;
As they [C]lay me 'neath the [G]green, green [Dm7]grass [G7]of [C]home.[F] [C]
