Green River Lyrics

by Everly Brothers

My father's father's on the front porch rockin'
A friend drops by, two old men talkin'
Rememberin' so many other summer days

Grandma's in the kitchen cookin'
The hound dog's on the back porch lookin'
The rooster crows the same time every day

Green river, you're still my home
I miss you
Green river, why did I roam?
I miss you

Sun sets low on blue grass meadows
Lamps are lit and casting shadows
We say goodbye to another perfect day

Green river, you're still my home
Green river, why did I roam?
Green river, someday I'll come home to stay

Green river, you're still my home
Green river, why did I roam?
Green river, someday I'll come home to stay
