green green grass of home lyrics – katherine jenkins

the old home town looks the same
as i step down from the train
and there to meet me is my mama and 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 gr*ss of home

yes, they’ll all be there to meet me
arms reaching smiling sweetly
it’s good to touch the green, green gr*ss of home

the old house is still standing
though the paint is cracked and dry
and there’s that old oak tree 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 gr*ss of home

yes, they’ll all come to meet me
arms reaching smiling sweetly
it’s good to touch the green, green gr*ss of home

the old home town looks the same
as i step down from the train
and there to meet me is my mama and 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 gr*ss of home

yes, they’ll all come to meet me
in the shade of the old oak tree
as they lay me ‘neath the green, green gr*ss of home
it’s good to touch the green, green gr*ss of home
