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 my papa.
Down the road I look, and there comes Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Verse 2
The old house is still standing,
Though the paint is cracked and dry,
And there's the 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.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Verse 3
Yes, they'll all come to see me,
Arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Verse 4
Then I awake and look around me,
To the cold gray walls that surround me,
And then I realize that I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard, and there's a sad old padre,
Arm in arm, I'll walk at daybreak.
Again, I'll touch the green, green grass of home.
Verse 5
Yes, they'll all come to see me
In the shade of the old oak tree,
As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass of home.
