Forty Shades of Green Written and recorded by Johnny Cash
C F I close my eyes and picture the emerald of the sea C D7 G7 From the fishing boats at Dingle to the shores of Donaghadee C F I miss the river Shannon and the folks at Skibbereen C F G7 C The moorlands and the meadows With their forty shades of green
F G7 C G7 C But most of all I miss a girl in Tipperary Town F G7 C G7 And most of all I miss her lips as soft as eiderdown C F Again I want to see and do the things we've done and seen C F G7 C Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar and there's forty shades of green
F I wish that I could spend an hour at Dublin's churning surf C D7 G7 I'd love to watch the farmers drain the bogs and spade the turf C F To see again the thatching of the straw the women glean C F G7 C I'd walk from Cork to Larne to see the forty shades of green
