LITTLE GREEN VALLEY
(written by Carson Robison)
as recorded by Marty Robbins

I see a candle light down in the little green valley,
Where mornin' glory vines are twinin' 'round my door.
Oh, how I wish I were there again, down in the little green valley.
That's where my homesick heart will trouble me no more.

There's only one thing ever gives me consolation,
And that's the thought that I'll be going back some day,
And every night down upon my knees, I pray the Lord to please take me
Back to that little old green valley, far away.

I hear a mockingbird down in the little green valley.
He's singing out a song of welcome just for me,
And someone waits by the garden gate down in the little green valley.
When I get back again, how happy she will be.

And by a little babbling brook once more we'll wander,
And in a shady nook we'll dream the hours away,
And I will leave all my cares behind, go where I know I'll find sunshine,
Back to that little old green valley, far away.
