Green, Green Grass of Home

Today is St David’s Day so I thought I’d play the song which Tom Jones took to number 1 in December 1966, Green, Green Grass of Home. It starts out as a nostalgic look back at the protagonist’s childhood home and then gets fairly miserable as we learn that he is in prison, on death row, and will soon be buried beneath the Green, Green Grass of Home. Hope that’s cheered you up 😉 Classic song, though! I promise tomorrow’s song will be much more upbeat!
