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 runs Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries,
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

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 walk with my sweet Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries,
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Yes, they'll all come to meet me,
Arms out reaching, smiling sweetly,
It's good to touch the green, green, grass of home.

[Spoken]:
Then I awake and look around me,
At the four grey walls that surround me,
And I realize that I was only dreaming;
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre,
Arm in arm we walk at daybreak,
Again I've touched the green, green grass of home.

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.

Originally popularized by Porter Wagoner, Bobby Bare and Jerry Lee Lewis in 1965, this now classic song was recorded by Tom Jones in 1966 when it reached number one in the United Kingdom Singles Chart for a total of seven weeks. Since then, countless others have recorded it, making it a timeless country favorite all around the world.

This variant was recorded by Richard Woodrow of New Harbour, NL, on his third CD (Island Favorites, trk#13, 2007, recorded and mixed by Kevin Collins at Sawyer Hill Productions, Placentia, NL, and produced and distributed by Richard Woodrow).
