Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm goin' away
To where the grass is greener still

A-well I told my mama on the day I was born
"Dontcha cry when you see I'm gone"
"Ya know there ain't no woman gonna settle me down"
"I just gotta be travelin' on"
singin'

Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm goin' away
To where the grass is greener still

Nah, there ain't nobody in this whole wide world
Gonna tell me how to spend my time
I'm just a good-lovin' ramblin' man
Say, buddy, can ya spare me a dime?
Hear me cryin', it's a

Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm goin' away
To where the grass is greener still

Yeah, I don't care when the sun goes down
Where I lay my weary head
Green, green valley or rocky road
It's there I'm gonna make my bed
Easy, now

Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm goin' away
To where the grass is greener still

Everybody, I wanna hear it now !!!

Green, green, it's green they say
On the far side of the hill
Green, green, I'm goin' away
To where the grass is greener still

Here's a site with the chords: Green Green The New Christy Minstrels may have used some fancier chords, but maybe not...it's a pretty simple song. Written by Randy Sparks and Barry McGuire of the NCM. Welcome to the Mudcat, hippie!

This is an experiment. I'm going to copy-paste from the site Mark linked to, and se if I can get the automatic line breaks to work. I thin the site is wrong. I'm almost positive the songwriter is Barry McGuire AND Randy Sparks. Yep, I checked BMI and it is.

          Barry McGuire & Randy Sparks

Chorus:
D                  G
Green, green, it's green they say,
       D               A7
On the far side of the hill.
D                G
Green, green, I'm going away
             D       A7      D
To where the grass is greener still.


               A            G         D
Well I told my momma on the day I was born,
       G            A       D
Don'cha cry when you see I'm gone.
                        A          G         D
You know there ain't no-body gonna settle me down,
       G       A          D
I just gotta be travellin' on... a-singin'

Chorus

                  A       G         D
Well I loved that man with all of my heart,
      G             A    D
And I will until the day I die.
               A       G       D
But I was just a stop a-long his way,
       G    A         D
I never even said good-bye.

Chorus

             A             G       D
Well, I don't care where the sun goes down,
         G       A    D
Or where I lay my weary head.
             A          G    D
Green, green valley on a rocky road,
             G         A      D
That's where I'm gonna lay my head.

Thanks a lot for finding Green Green Green. The Minstrels went in 1965 in Italy and sang at the Sanremo festival:" Le colline sono in fiore "( The Hills are bloomin') . I have the italian Lyrics but I'm not very clever for finding the chords. Another hit was Kathy Cruel,very intriguing. I remember they were guest of the White House at the time of J.F.K and Lyndon Johnson. Best regards

The original recording by the Minstrels is in the key of C. This is what Barry McGuire does in a recent concert on a 12-string.

"Lick" refers to the song's signature intro lick:

E|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|-----------------0--1--2--|
A|-----0--1--2--3-----------|
E|--3-----------------------|

Green, Green

Don't you (F)cry when you (G3fr)see I'm (C)gone
You (Am/C)know (C)there ain't no (Em)woman's gonna (F)settle me (C)down
I just (F)gotta keep (G3fr)travelin' (C)on

(C)Green, green, it's (F)green they say

(Am/C)Nah, (C)there ain't no(Em)body in this (F)whole wide (C)world
Gonna (F)tell me how to (G3fr)spend my (C)time (Am/C) (C)
I'm just a (Em)good lovin' (F)ramblin' (C)man
Sayin', (F)"Buddy, can you (G3fr)spare me a (C)dime?"

To where the (C)grass is (G)greener (C)still (Am/C)

(C)Yeah, I don't (Em)care where the (F)sun goes (C)down
Where I (F)lay my (G3fr)weary (C)head (Am/C) (C)
Green, green (Em)valley or (F)rocky (C)road
It's (F)there I'm gonna (G3fr)make my (C)bed
(Lick)Easy now

(C)Green, green, it's (F)green they say

To where the grass is (G)greener (C)still (Lick)
To where the grass is (G)greener (C)still (Lick)
(C) (Am/C) (C)

While I prefer doing the chorus part like this:

(C)Green, green, it's (F)green they say
(C)On the (F)far side of the (G)hill (Lick)
(C)Green, green, I'm (F)going away
(C)To where the (F)grass is (G)greener (C)still
