In the meadow where I lived
stands a green grassy hill,
Forgotten by many, but I never will....
Forget the years I played there
when I was a child,
On that green grassy hill
where the daisies grow wild.

Oh, that green grassy hill
still looks the same to me,
Though the kids that I played with
have all moved away;
I'd give anything just to walk with a friend,
And sit on that green grassy hill once again.

For hours we'd talk of the plans that we had,
The talks about leavin'
and the plans that we have;
Of the vows to stick together
as kids sometimes will,
And never depart from that green grassy hill.

Whenever I'm burdened with troubles and cares,
My mind wanders back to those happier years;
The present forgotten as time just stands still,
And I find there a dreamin'
on that green grassy hill.

Oh, that green grassy hill
still looks the same to me,
Though the kids that I played with
have all moved away;
I'd give anything just to walk with a friend,
And sit on that green grassy hill once again.
And sit on that green grassy hill once again.
And sit on that green grassy hill once again.

[fading]
And sit on that green grassy hill once again.
And sit on that green grassy hill....
