 Once There Were Greenfields

“Come back to me in dreams; that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.”

- Christina Rossetti
(5 Dec 1830 - 29 Dec 1894)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 
   If I were one of those people who cried at hearing sad old songs, this one would probably take me down.  Oh, wait.  I am one of those people.....

Once There Were Greenfields

- Gilkyson, Dehr, Miller

Recorded by  The Brothers Four, 1960


Once there were greenfields, kissed by the sun
Once there were valleys, where river used to run
Once there were blue skies with white clouds high above
Once they were part of an everlasting love
We were the lovers who strolled thru greenfields

Greenfields are gone now, parched by the sun
Gone from the valleys were rivers used to run
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart
Gone with the lovers who let their love depart
Where are the greenfields that we used to roam

I'll never know what made you run away
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the way
I only know there's nothing here for me
Nothing in this wide world left for me to see
But I'll keep on waiting until you return
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy when your heart's on the roam
You can't be happy until you bring it home
Home to the greenfields and me once again
