Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and make a ring, circle left and hear me sing
Then you reverse go single file go walking
Girls step out and backtrack, meet your own and box the
gnat

Pull by, left allemande and weave the ring
It's in and out around you go until you meet your own
You dosado that gal and promenade
Yes they'll all be there to meet me, arms outstretched, smiling sweetly
When again I see the green green grass of home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4 round you turn the gal and then
Heads lead to the right and then
You circle make a line go up and back,
And then you swing thru
Without a stop, spin the top you do
Right & left thru, turn the gal, roll away, pass thru
U-turn back and swing and promenade
Yes they'll all be there to meet me, arms outstretched, smiling sweetly
When again I see the green green grass of home

Green Green Grass 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 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.
