GREEN HILLS
MIDNITE/MIDNITE


VERS I
DID YOU SEE THESE GREEN HILLS
NEAR THE RIVER IN THE WOODS
DID YOU HEAR THE POETS RHYMES
THEY´RE TALKING ABOUT YOUR ROOTS

VERS II
DID YOU KNOW THAT SHE IS GONE
BECAUSE YOU DID NOT TREAT HER RIGHT
DID YOU KNOW HER LIFE´S GOIN ON
BECAUSE SHE’S GIVING UP HER FIGHT


BRIDGE:

THERES A SUMMER RAIN SO SWEET AND WARM
IT IS TELLING YOU A DREAM
THERES MORE PLACES IN THE WORLD
WHERE YOU´VE NEVER BEEN

CHORUS
THERE WERE GREEN HILLS IN MY CHILDHOOD
THEY WERE LOST WHEN I GREW UP
TURN THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY VANISHED WITH THE TIME
IN THOSE GREEN HILLS NEAR THE RIVERS WELL
WERE I LOST MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS
SEE THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY STILL REMIND ME OF YOU


VERS III
DID YOU REMEMBER YOUR MOTHER SAID
SHE STOOD IN THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE
BE CAREFUL AND HONEST STAY SIMPLE AND PROUD
TRY TO FIND THE FREEDOM FOR YOUR LIFE

VERS IV
AND YOU CAN COME HOME WHENEVER YOU WANT
YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME HERE MY SON
IM PROUD WHEN YOU FIND A PLACE IN THE WORLD
IF NOT YOU ARE NOT ALONE

BRIDGE:
THERES A SUMMER RAIN SO SWEET AND WARM
IT IS TELLING YOU A DREAM
THERES MORE PLACES IN THE WORLD
WHERE YOU´VE NEVER BEEN


CHORUS
THERE WERE GREEN HILLS IN MY CHILDHOOD
THEY WERE LOST WHEN I GREW UP
TURN THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY VANISHED WITH THE TIME
IN THOSE GREEN HILLS NEAR THE RIVERS WELL
WERE I LOST MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS
SEE THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY STILL REMIND ME OF YOU

BRIDGE
IN THESE GREEN HILLS BACK IN MY YOUTH
THE SKY IS WIDE AND BLUE
IN THIS GREEN HILLS EVERYTHING REMINDS ME OF YOU

CHORUS
THERE WERE GREEN HILLS IN MY CHILDHOOD
THEY WERE LOST WHEN I GREW UP
TURN THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY VANISHED WITH THE TIME
IN THOSE GREEN HILLS NEAR THE RIVERS WELL

WERE I LOST MY CHILDHOOD DREAMS
SEE THE PAGES IN MY DIARY
THEY STILL REMIND ME OF YOU
