The Green, Green Grass of Home

J. Putman

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
Chorus:
Yes they'll all come to meet me
Arms reaching smiling sweetly
It's good to touch
The green green grass of home.

2. 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 walked with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch
The green green grass of home
Chorus:

3. Then I awake and look around me
There's four grey walls that surround me
Then I realised, that I'd only been dreaming
For there's a guard and a sad old padre
On and on we'll walk at day break
Then again I'll touch
The green green grass of home.
Chorus:
Yes they'll all come to see me
'neath the shade of that old oak tree
As they lay me 'neath
The green green grass of home.
