Green Green Grass Of Home
 





Lord, I'm many miles away from home
Mid these desert sands so cold
Where shifting whispering grains of it
Form a wall around my soul




Above me there are only stars
That shine with heavenly light
And occasionally I see the flare
Of a bomb explode at night




There's nothing here I care about
No comfort in this land
Yet I'll slumber sweetly here tonight
Despite this awful sand



For in sleep I dream and I can't wait
For then again you see
I'll be walking down some lonely path
Back home where I want to be



Where water tastes like red red wine
And the living's easy , free
Where the music sings and the air is clean
And I'm free to just be me




Cause I'm tired of playing soldier
Here in this foreign land
But I'll stay and do my duty
Like my country ,it demands




Still I long to kiss the ones I love
Not fight here all alone
But God is good, so tonight
I'll touch the green green grass of home




In dreams again I'll be with you
With a harvest moon above
Where my heart sings hallelujah
Finally here... where I dreamed off.
