These Green Hills

Driving this old country road always puts my mind at ease
Gently rolling hills, some cows, creeks, some trees

It's another rainy day drive
The green hills look so alive 
Full of life, not the usual brown
How I wish you were still around..

These green hills... These green hills...
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

It’s the first day of a new year
And it still feels like you're here
The drive is different this time, I know
Miss your smile surrounding me, can’t let go

I remember we stopped at that farm over there
And sipped lemonade in the warm air
They took our picture on the front porch swing
You laughed so when i tried to sing..

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

Passing mile marker ninety-three
Oh.. you got so mad at me 
I wouldn't stop to see the baby calf
I wish i did, now makes me laugh

There's a lot I'd do different now
I know our time is past, yet somehow..
Green hill memories, they won't let go
They're part of me, this I know..

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

I'm ok for now, I still go on..
Life's still full, maybe its just begun
But I know these green hills will not compare
With those we'll see in heaven's air

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go.. 
Everywhere I go…

Some have asked about how song turned out. Check for on itunes under my name Shawn Sackman. Thanks.

    Do you have music to accompany these lyrics? I would love to hear how it sounds. You have written everything here quite well with descriptiveness and rhyming.
