I walked across the mountains swam across the rivers
So many that I couldn't keep a tally
I lived for the moment I could feast my eyes
Down upon the green green valley
Home in the green green valley

You know I left this valley over twenty years ago
And I headed out west toward Colorado
But I had a little sweetheart lived here in this valley
And somehow I never quite forgot her
Her face was just as fresh as the dew on a flower
My blonde headed freckle faced little Sally
Big blue eyes and soft pink lips
Surrounded by the green green valley

I walked across the mountains swam across the rivers...

There was one more hilltop then there it was
Stretchin' out just like heaven there in front of me
I got a mighty funny feelin' though as I looked down that hill
I wondered if anybody would remember me
Then all of a sudden there was old Ebenezer Brown
And I asked him where I might find my Sally
He didn't say a word just pointed down the road
To the corner of the green green valley
I took off runnin' just fast as I could go
Cause I knew then that Sally hadn't forgotten
For this was the part of the valley we always said
We were gonna raise our children and our cotton
But then I stopped and I looked
For there was only a little fence and a marker on the grave of my Sally
She was lyin' there restin' just waitin' for me to come home
Home to the green green valley

I walked across the mountains swam across the rivers
So many that I couldn’t keep a tally

I sat down beside her and I whispered
Sally I'm home

Home in the green green valley
Home in the green green valley
Home in the green green valley
Home in the green green valley
