It's good to touch the green, green grass of home. Then I awake and look around me At four grey walls that surround me, And I realize: yes, I was only dreaming. For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre. On in on we'll walk at daybreak. Then again I'll touch the green, green grass of home. Yes, they'll all come to see me In the shade of that old oak tree As they lay me neath the green, green grass of home. Thanks to Anne Beachey, Klaus Huelscher, Dale Blevins, Kevin, John Meek for correcting these lyrics.

Tom Jones decided to record this after hearing a version by Jerry Lee Lewis, a legendary rocker who had started making country records. A year after Johnny Darrell's original version, Lewis recorded this on his album Country Songs For City Folks. Jones recalled to The Mail On Sunday February 6, 2011: "I used to collect anything Jerry Lee Lewis recorded, and still do. I was in New York in 1965 when I bought his country album Country Songs For City Folks
Green, Green Grass of Home", written by Claude "Curly" Putman, Jr. and first recorded by singer Johnny Darrell, is a country song originally made popular by Porter Wagoner in 1965, when it reached No. 4 on the country chart. That same year, it was sung by Bobby Bare and by Jerry Lee Lewis, who included it his album Country Songs for City Folks (later re-issued as All Country). Tom Jones learned the song from Lewis' version, and in 1966, he had a worldwide No. 1 hit with it.
