jiwo’s day

dsc00337crp

o, give me a home

where the buffalo roam

where the deer and the antelope play

where seldom is heard

a discouraging word

and the skies are not cloudy all day

o home, home on the range

where the deer and the antelope play

where seldom is heard

a discouraging word

and the skies are not cloudy all day

happy birthday jiwo..

green, green grass of home

andrey_nickolaevich_shilder_finland-country-house

The old home town looks the same
As I step down from the train
And there to meet me is my mama and papa
Down the road I look,  and there runs Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home
The old house is still standing
Though the paint is cracked and dry
And there’s that old oak tree that I used to play on
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home
Yes, they’ll all come to meet me
Arms reaching, smiling sweetly
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home
Then I awake and look around me
To the cold grey walls that surround me
And then I realize, I was only dreaming
For there’s a guard and there’s a sad old padre
Arm and arm we walk at daybreak
Again, I’ll touch the green, green grass of home
Yes, they’ll all come to see me
In the shade of the old oak tree
As they lay me beneath the green, green grass of home
