Song Meaning
Verse 1
Green, green, forty shades of green
Verse 2
I close my eyes and picture
The emerald of the sea
From the fishing boats at Dingle
To the shores of Donaghadee
Verse 3
I miss the river Shannon
And the folks at Skibbereen
The moorlands and the meddle
With their forty shades of green
Verse 4
But most of all I miss a girl
In Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown
Verse 5
Again I want to see and do
The things we've done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar
And there's forty shades of green
Verse 6
Green, green, forty shades of green
Verse 7
I wish that I could spend an hour
At Dublin's churching surf
I'd love to watch the farmers
Drain the bogs and spade the turf
Verse 8
To see again the thatching
Of the straw the women glean
I'd walk from Cork to Larne to see
The forty shades of green
Verse 9
But most of all I miss a girl
In Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown
Verse 10
Again I want to see and do
The things we've done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar
And there's forty shades of green
