forty shades of green   Johnny Cash

         -- Johnny Cash --
(G) I close my eyes and picture the (C) emerald of the sea,
      From the (G) fishing boats at Dingle,
      To the (A7) shores of Donagha (D)-dea;
      I (G) miss the River Shannon,
      And the (C) folks at Skibbereen,
      The (G)  moorlands and the meadows
      With their (D) forty shades of (G) green.
       But (C) most of all I miss a girl in
       (G) Tipperary town.
       And (C) most of all I miss her (G) lips,
       As (A7) soft as eider-(D)-down;
       (G) Again I want to see and do
       The (C) things we've done and seen,
       With the (G) breeze as sweet as shalamar,
        And there's (D) forty shades of (G) green.

      I wish that I could spend an hour
      At (C) Dublin's churning surf,
      I'd (G) love to watch the farmers drain 
     The (A7) bogs and spade the (D) turf;
     To (G) see again the thatches 
     Of the (C) straw the women glean;
     I'd (G) walk from Cork to Laren to see
     The (D) forty shades of (G) green.
