Forty Shades Of Green Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Ring Of Fire (The Best Of Johnny Cash)

(Green green forty shades of green)
I close my eyes and picture the emerald of the sea
From the fishing boats at Dingle to the shores of Dunardee
I miss the river Shannon and the folks at Skibbereen
The moorlands and the midlands with their forty shades of green
But most of all I miss a girl in Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips as soft as eiderdown
Again I want to see and do the things we've done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar and there's forty shades of green
(Green green green forty shades of green)
I wish that I could spend an hour at Dublin's churching surf
I'd love to watch the farmers drain the bogs and spade the turf
To see again the thatching of the straw the women glean
I'd walk from Cork to Larne to see the forty shades of green
But most of all I miss a girl...

Just went to Ireland and heard this song. Had no idea it was a Johnny Cash song. I think it is beautiful.

Johnny Cash wrote about thirty fantastic ballads that most people don't associate with him.
Unlike the old record days every song had who wrote it and one knew.
These days the songwiter is given little credit.
