    Green, Green Grass of Home

    [Verse 1]
    The old home town looks the same
    As I step down from the train
    And there to meet me is my mama and my 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

    [Verse 2]
    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 with my sweet Mary
    Hair of gold and lips like cherries
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

    [Chorus]
    Yes, they'll all come to see me
    Arms reaching, smiling sweetly
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

    [Verse 3]
    Then I awake and look around me
    To the cold gray walls that surround me
    And then I realize I was only dreaming
    For there's a guard, and a sad old padre
    Arm in arm, I walk at daybreak
    Again, I'll touch the green, green grass of home

    [Chorus]
    Yes, they'll all come to see me
    In the shade of the old tree as they lay me
    'Neath the green, green grass of home

    [Spoken Outro]
    Thank you very much
    This next song was written by a man right here in Folsom Prison
    And last night was the first time I've ever sung the song
    Anyway, this song was written by our friend Glenn Shirley, and–
    Um, hope we do your song justice, man
    We're gonna do our best
