Green Green    (1963)

Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

Well, I told my mama on the day I was born
Don't you cry when you see I'm gone
There ain't no woman gonna settle me down
I just gotta be travelin' on.

A singin'
Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

There ain't nobody in this whole wide world
Gonna tell me how to spend my time
I'm just a good lovin' ramblin' man
Say buddy, can ya spare me a dime?

Hear me cryin'
It's a green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

I don't care when the sun goes down
Where I lay my weary head
Green, green valley or rocky road
It's there I'm gonna make my bed

Easy now
Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

Everybody let me hear ya now
Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

To where the grass is greener still
To where the grass is greener still
