Lyrics

Shades of green Was the last thing that you'd seen As you left your hungry child And kissed him on his brow As you walked away And sadly waved goodbye

Never gonna kiss his lips or hold his hand Never gonna see your brother become a man You want to shout and tell the world of what you've done Although you know you couldn't provide for your son Now you know you did just what you had to do But doing what you did still bothers you But time has ???? Neverending memories still linger on On and on Shades of green Never leave your restless dreams You can hear your baby cry You can see him in the night All wrapped in green as you left him far behind Never gonna see him play or run about Never gonna hear 'momma' ringing out As the thought keeps tumblin' through your mind each day You punish yourself, then you kneeled and pray Oh how I wish you were me and I were you So I can bear the test you're goin' through Take my hand and close your mind to what you see Let's make a brand new life for you and me You and me Shades of green Was the last thing that you'd seen As you left your hungry child And kissed him on his brow As you walked away And sadly waved goodbye Shades of green Never leave your restless dreams You can hear your baby cry You can see him in the night All wrapped in green as you left him far behind
