Omitted by Burl Ives)

A sweet perfume upon the breeze,
Is borne from ever vernal trees,
And flow?rs, that never fading grow
Where streams of life forever
the kitchen cookin' 
The hound dog's on the back porch lookin' 
The rooster crows the same time every day 

Green river, you're still my home 
I miss you
little patch of green.
Won't you lie down here right now 

In this September grass?
Won't you lie down with me now, 
September grass.

Oh,
She packed her bags and moved to Florida 
I've been blue since she's been gone
And this bowling green motel room 
Is now my old Kentucky home
All
in

And every town that I travel through made me want to go home again
The green green grass and the rollin' hills seem to keep a callin' me
Back
wears down Sisters and brothers are coming home To see the Santiago dawn 
Santiago sunrise See them marching home See them rising like grass through
here on the shore
    And the grass was so green and the water so blue



Well our house stood right over there
Of course they took it down for
Diesel smoke climbin' to the clear blue sky I sit here wonderin' wanderin' why
I leave her everytime I love her
Green grass growin' by picket fence
Fidel wasn't home 
So they showed us where the sugar was grown 

Chorus Havana Bound hi-jacked by some joker 
Took me down to Cuba 
Where the grass
Fidel wasn't home 
So they showed us where the sugar was grown 

Chorus Havana Bound hi-jacked by some joker 
Took me down to Cuba 
Where the grass
This is "my home town song"
A "how it's like at home song"
Spending hours all alone
Waiting by the phone

It's hard to say come closer
When
Look at the ivy on the cold clinging wall
Look at the flowers and the green grass so tall
It's not a matter of when push comes to shove
It's just
We wander lost forgotten hills
Blue sky, green grass, we are still
The mists enfold us gently smelling
Breeze in our ears softly telling
Of the days
Jimmy won't you please come home
Where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam 
Come see Jimmy your uncle Jim
Your auntie Jim and your cousin
Held my breath and dAnnotaterove through a maze of wealthy homes
I watched how green the trees were
I watched the steep walkways and the white
Look at the ivy on the cold clinging wall
Look at the flowers and the green grass so tall
It's not a matter of when push comes to shove
It's just
every town,
By God, but it brings me to tears.
When I got home, I found just a flower on the mound
Where it shamed the green grasses of spring.
It grew
on the shore
    And the grass was so green and the water so blue



Well our house stood right over there
Of course they took it down for the highway
I
Jimmy won't you please come home
Where the grass is green and the buffaloes roam
Come see Jimmy
Your uncle Jim and your auntie Jim and your cousin
ever known

Baby, this ain't home to me, no matter what they say
The grass is too damn green here and the hearts are dull and grey
So take me down
bones
I've seen people without homes
And it's all with the passing of my life

I've seen highways headin' down
I've seen green grass turn to brown
Leave it all behind
Yeah

We'll take you down 
To sweet home Alabama
And out 
To hotel California
Show you 
The bluest skies in Texas
And the green 
Green
Rise from candle to a fire
With sky of blue and green of grass,
A land of dreams from shattered glass

Thy people now no longer roam,
We reclaim our
I ain't old
Why didn't I ever say what I mean?
I should have split home at fifteen.
There's a story that the grass is so green,
What did I see?
We didn't know the times were lean,
Round our house the grass was green,
It didn't seem like things were all that bad,

I bet we walked
