[Intro:]    [Am]    [Dm]    [Am]    [E7]    
[Am]Once there were gre[Dm]en fields [Am] kissed by the s[E7]un,   
[Am]Once there were val[Dm]leys where [Am]rivers used to r[E7]un;   
O[F]nce there were b[Dm7]lue skies with w[C]hite clouds high a[Am]bove,
On[F]ce they were [Dm7]part of an [C]everlasting l[E7]ove;   
[Am]We were the l[Dm]overs who s[Am]trolled t[E7]hrough green fi[Am]elds   [Dm].    [Am]    [E7]    

[Am]Greenfields are g[Dm]one now, [Am] parched by the s[E7]un,   
[Am]Gone from the [Dm]valleys where r[Am]ivers used to r[E7]un,   
[F]Gone with the c[Dm7]old wind that s[C]wept into my [Am]heart,
[F]Gone with the l[Dm7]overs who [C]let their dreams dep[E7]art.   
[Am]Where are the [Dm]greenfields that [Am]we    [E7] used to ro[Am]am? [Dm]    [Am]    [E7]    

[F] I'll never kn[F7]ow what [Dm7]made you run a[C]way;
[F]How can I keep se[F7]arching when [Dm7]dark clouds hide the d[C]ay?  [C/B]    
[Am] I only know there's [Dm]nothing here for me,
[Am]Nothing in this w[Dm]ide world l[F]eft for me to s[E7]ee.   

But I[Am]'ll keep on w[Dm]aiting [Am] till you ret[E7]urn,   
[Am]I'll keep on [Dm]waiting un[Am]til the day you l[E7]earn   
[F]You can't be [Dm7]happy while y[C]our heart's on the [Am]roam,
[F]You can't be [Dm7]happy un[C]til you bring it h[E7]ome   
[Am]Home to the g[Dm]reenfields and [Am]me    [E7] once ag[Am]ain. [Dm]    [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    

Once there were green fields kissed by the sun,
Once there were valleys where rivers 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 through green fields.

Greenfields are gone now, parched by the sun,
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run,
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart,
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams 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 day?
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 till you return,
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam,
You can't be happy until you bring it home
Home to the greenfields and me once again.
