funny I remember this song from a kid, I heard it played twice this last week, once at a local restaurant , the other on the oldies station. Was this the brothers four or some name like that. Anyone remember who did it on the radio a zillion years ago?

Now it is stuck in my head, woke up humming it all day ...

Yup, I remember it too - and it was the Brothers Four:

Bonnie (old dudess)


Once there were green fields kissed by the sun
Once there were valleys where rivers used to run
Once there were blue skies with white clouds high above
Once they were part of an everlasting love
We were the lovers who strolled through green fields

Green fields are gone now, parched by the sun
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams depart
Where are the green fields that we used to roam

I'll never know what made you run away
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the day
I only know there's nothing here for me
Nothing in this wide world, left for me to see

Still I'll keep on waiting until you return
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam
You can't be happy until you bring it home
Home to the green fields and me once again
