Chorus
G C G D7
Green, green, it's green they say on the far side of the hill
G C G D7 G
Green, green, I'm going away to where the grass is greener still
 
G D C G
Well I told my mamma on the day I was born
C D G
Don't you cry when you see I'm gone
G D C G
You know there ain't no woman gonna settle me down
C D G
I just gotta be travelling on, singing
 
Chorus
 
G D C G
Now there ain't nobody in this whole wide world
C D G
Gonna tell me how to spend my time
G D C G
I'm just a good loving rambling man
C D G
Say buddy could you spare me a dime
 
Chorus
 
G D C G
Well I loved that woman with all of my heart
C D G
And I will till the day I die
G D C G
But I was just a stop along her way
C D G
She never even said goodbye
 
Chorus
 
G D C G
Well, I don't care where the sun goes down
C D G
Where I lay my weary head
G D C G
Green, green valley or rocky road
C D G
That's where I'm gonna lay my head
 
Chorus
