[D]Green, green, it's g[G]reen they say,
On the f[D]ar side of the [A7]hill.
[D]Green, green, I'm g[G]oing away
To where the g[D]rass is g[A7]reener s[D]till.
Well I told my m[A]omma on the d[G]ay I was b[D]orn,
Don'cha [G]cry when you [A]see I'm g[D]one.
You know there ain't nob[A]ody gonna s[G]ettle me d[D]own,
I just g[G]otta be t[A]ravellin' [D]on, a-singin':
Well I loved that man with all of my heart,
And I will until the day I die.
But I was just a stop along his way,
I never even said good-bye.
Well, I don't care where the sun goes down,
Or where I lay my weary head.
Green, green valley on a rocky road,
That's where I'm gonna lay my head.
