Green Green Grass of Home (ReImagined)

This country classic, written by Curly Putman and remade as a worldwide #1 hit by Tom Jones in the late 60's, is a simple pleasure of mine - though in reality it's a pretty sad song. In the original version the singer, likely having murdered some poor soul, heads off to the gallows after dreaming about seeing the green green grass, his family, and of course his sweetheart with hair of gold and lips like cherries, back home. I put a twist on that - instead, the singer can't go on without his Mary - implying another kind of tragic end. It's still sad, but a little less 'wild west', shall we say. Also added a mournful harmonica solo. I won't say 'enjoy' this time, but I do hope you appreciate my take on the song.
