Melody - Terry Gilkyson, Rich Dehr, Frank Miller, 1956


Once there were greenfields, kissed by the sun;
Once there were valleys, where river 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 thru greenfields.

Greenfields are gone now, parched by the sun;
Gone from the valleys were rivers used to run;
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart;
Gone with the lovers who let their love depart.
Where are the greenfields 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,
But I'll keep on waiting until you return.

I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy when your heart's on the roam.
You can't be happy until you bring it home,
Home to the greenfields and me once again. :|

Home to the greenfields and me once again.
