The Green Green Grass Of Home by Elvis Presley

Intro: 4/4
   |  G  |  Am  -  D | G  -  C  | G  /D  /E  /F# |

        G
1. The old home town looks the same,
         C                   G
   As I step down from the train, 
                 G                      D7
   And there to meet me is my ma-ma and pa-pa
             G               G7
** Down the road I look and there runs Ma-ry
 C                 | C    -    Bm  |
   Hair of gold and lips like cher-ries
         G                 Am            D       G
   It's good to touch the green, green grass of home
                 G         | G  -  Am  |
   Yes, they'll all come to meet me,
          C                 | C  -  Bm  |
   Arms reach-ing, smil-ing sweet-ly
            G                 Am            D     | G  -  C | G  /D  /E  /F# |
   Oh It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

        G
2. The old house is still stand-ing,
                C                   G
   Though the paint is cracked and dry
                     G                           D7
   And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on
                  G               G7
** Yeah Down the lane I walk with my sweet Ma-ry
 C                 | C    -    Bm  |
   Hair of gold and lips like cher-ries
          G                Am            D       G
   It's good to touch the green, green grass of home
                 G         | G  -  Am |
   Yes, they'll all come to meet me,
          C                 
   Arms reach-ing, smil-ing sweet-ly
            G                 Am            D     | G  -  C |  G  /D  /E  /F# |
   Oh It's good to touch the green, green grass of home

 G
3. Then I a-wake and look a-round me
       C                         G
   At four gray walls that sur-round me
         G                      D7
   And I re-a-lize I was only dream-in'
               G                 G7
** There's a guard and there's a sad old pa-dre
 C                  | C   -  Bm  |
   Arm and arm we'll walk at day-break
      G                   Am            D       G
   A-gain I'll touch the green, green grass of home
                 G         | G  -  Am  |
   Yes, they'll all come to see me
            C          C   -   Bm  |
   In the shade of an old oak tree
            G                  Am           D         | C / Bm  Am  |  G  |
   As they lay me 'neath the green, green grass... of home
