Song : F#
Intro :
D G D A
D
The old home town looks the same
G D
as I step down from the train
A
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
D
Down the road I look and there runs Mary,
G
hair of gold and lips like cherries.
D A D
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Chorus :

D G
Yes,they'll all come to meet me arms a-reaching,
smiling sweetly;
D A D
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

D G
The old house is still standing, though the paint is
D
cracked and dry,
A
And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on
D
Down the lane I walk and with my sweet Mary,
G
hair of gold and lips like cherries.
D A D
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Bridge :

D
And then suddenly I awake and look around me
G D
at the four gray walls that surround me
A
and I realize that I was only dreaming.
D
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre
G
Arm and arm we'll walk at daybreak
D A D
again I'll touch the green, green grass of home

Chorus :

D G
Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade
of that old oak tree;
D A
As they lay me 'neath the green, green
G D
grass of home.
