Russ...

Marty Robbins does it on his "Gunfighter Ballads" album. I dig it out and send you the stuff.

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.

Just to add a little more info on this song. Apparently it was originally written by Carson Robison and recorded by his trio in 1928, see here.

Irving Rofe                                             
                  

             LITTLE GREEN VALLEY
                                       
          BY Vernon Dalhart –Carson Robison - 1928
                                                
All night long in my dreams I see a spot far away.
Nestled, in the hills ,in a, land that I love,
Stormy weather may come but weather the shy,s blue or grey,
I keep dreamin , of sunlight gleaming ,from heaven above,

I see a candle light down in the little green valley,
Where mornin glory vines are twining round the door.
Oh, how I wish I were there tonight, down in the little green valley.
For then my homesick heart would trouble me no more.

There's only one thing ever gives me consolation,
And that's the dream 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.

It’s not hard to see just what’s wrong with me all the time ,
When I tell you I’m home sick lonesome and sad,
There’s a deep regret, I will never get off my mind,
Cause I went to roam, left, the only home I ever had.

I hear a mockingbird down in the little green valley.
Singin out his heart, to welcome me,
And someone waits by the garden gate down in the little green valley.
When I get home again , how happy she will be.

Down by a little babblin brook once more we'll wander,
And, in a shady nook I'll dream the hours away,
And there I’ll leave every care behind, go where I know I'll find sunshine,
Down in that little old green valley far away.

Much obliged, leeneia. It has a nice feel to it (although I don't really care for the ascending guitar run at about 11 seconds). It's somewhat refreshing to listen to a song that isn't 'autocorrected' or whatever that's called. :-)
