Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*The old home town looks the same
As I step down off the train
There to greet me is my Mama
And Papa
(Allemande and weave)
**Down the lane, I look and there runs Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherry
It's good to touch the green, green grass
Of home


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The old house is standing
Though the paint is cracked and dry
There's that old oak tree that I used
To play on
(Allemande and weave)
**Down the land I'd walk with my sweet Mary


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands round
Swing thru and now
Boy run right, tag the line, cloverleaf my friend
The girls square thru three hands round
Swing your corner man
Allemande left come back and promenade
It's good to touch the green, green grass
Of home

It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

Green Green Grass Of Home Lyrics ID: 254

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 runs 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 a-reaching, smiling sweetly
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 and with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold an lips like cherries
it's good to touch the green green grass of home

Then I awake and look around me
At the four gray 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 and arm we'll walk at daybreak
Again I'll touch 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

Lyrics by Curly Putman.
Recorded by Porter Wagoner; Tom Jones; Hank Snow; Roger Miller; others.
