Where The Green Grass Grows

Album: Everywhere (1997)
Charted: 79
  • Six lanes tail lights
    Red ants marchin' into the night
    They disappear to the left and right again
    Another supper
    From a sack
    A ninety nine cent heart attack
    I got a poundin' head and an achin' back
    And the camels buried in a big straw stack

    I'm gonna live where the green grass grows
    Watch my corn pop up in rows
    Every night be tucked in close, to you
    Raise our kids where the good Lord's blessed
    Point our rockin' chairs towards the west
    And plant our dreams where the peaceful river flows
    Where the green grass grows

    Well I'm from
    A map dot
    A stop sign on a blacktop
    I caught the first bus, I could hop from there
    But all o' this glitter is gettin' dark
    There's concrete glowin' in the city park
    I don't know who my neighbors are
    And there's bars on the corner and bars on my heart

    I'm gonna live where the green grass grows
    Watch my corn pop up in rows
    Every night be tucked in close, to you
    Raise our kids where the good Lord's blessed
    Point our rockin' chairs towards the west
    And plant our dreams where the peaceful river flows
    Where the green grass grows

    I'm gonna live where the green grass grows
    Watch my corn pop up in rows
    Every night be tucked in close, to you
    Raise our kids where the good Lord's blessed
    Point our rockin' chairs towards the west
    And plant our dreams where the peaceful river flows
    Whoa where the green grass grows Writer/s: CRAIG WISEMAN, JESSICA LEARY
