Song Meaning
Verse 1
The old home town looks the same
As I step down from the train
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Yes, they'll all come to meet me
Arms a'reaching, smiling sweetly
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Down the lane I walk and with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home
Verse 6
Then I awake and look around me
At four gray walls that surround me
And I realize that I was only dreaming
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
