Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I don't care when the sun goes down
Where I rest my weary head
In a green, green valley or a rocky road
That's where I'll make my bed

Circle left
Green, green, green I say
Left allemande, swing until (you promenade her now)
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2 way you will go
Come down the middle & do the right & left thru
Why don't you square thru 4, go moving along
Go right & left thru & turn the gal once more
Veer left now
Chain down the line, you turn 'em and then
Slide thru, swing until (you promenade her now)
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Allemande left in an alamo style
Rock it there and then
Swing thru, go forward 2 you know (rock it there)
Swing thru and now meet your partner
Turn thru
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring (here we go now)
Green, green, green I say
On the far side of the hill

You swing and promenade her now
Green, green, I'm going away
To where the grass is greener still

Green Green
 
 

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

Lyrics by Randy Sparks, Barry McGuire and Encino Mandalay.
Recorded by The New Christy Minstrels; The Brothers Four; others.
