LITTLE GREEN VALLEY
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Words and music by Carson Robison
CAPO: 2nd FRET/KEY: E/PLAY: D
[D] I see a candlelight [G] down in the little green [D] valley
Where Morning [A7] Glory vines are twining 'round my [D] door
Oh, [A7] how I [D] wish I were there again
[G] Down in the little green [D] valley
That's where my [A7] homesick heart will trouble me no [D] more.
There's only one [G] thing ever gives me consola-[D] tion
And that's the thought that I'll be going back [A7] someday
And ev'ry [D] night down upon my knees
[G] I pray the Lord to please [D] take me
Back to that [A7] little old green valley far a-[D] way.
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.
