Green, Green Grass of Home   Johnny Cash

The old home[G]town looks the [G7]same as I [C]stepped down from the [G]train
And there to [G]meet me is my Mama and my [D]Papa
Down the [G]road I look and [G7]there runs Mary
[C]Hair of gold and lips like [G]cherries
Its [G]good to touch the [D7]green green grass of [G]home

The old house is still standing though the paint is cracked and dry
And theres that old oak tree that I used to play on
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
Its good to touch the green green grass of home

Yes they'll [G]all come to see [G7]me
Arms [C]reaching smiling sweetly
Its [G]good to touch the [D7]green green grass of [G]home

Then I awake and look around me to the cold gray walls that surround me
And then I realize I was only dreaming
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre
Arm in arm I walk at daybreak
Again I'll touch touch green green grass of home

Yes they'll [G]all come to see [G7]me
In the [C]shade of the old oak tree
As they [G]lay me neath the [D7]green green grass of [C]home[G]
