GREEN GREEN ROCKY ROAD
Back in the 60’s in Greenwich Village there was a rumor going around that someone
didn’t know this song. It seemed like everyone new it. Dave Van Ronk used to do it,
among many, many others. This song is based on a religious song of the same name
called “Rocky Road”.
No carpet on the floor.
Come along and follow me.
Must go down to Galilee
singin’ Green, green rocky road
Promenadein’ green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.
Hooka, tooka , soda cracker,
Does your mamna chew tobacker?
If your mama chew tobacker,
Hooka, tooka soda cracker.
singin’ Green, green rocky road
Promenadein’ green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.
If you seem me comin’ fast,
Sweep the yard and cut the grass;
Girls who kiss are bound to fall,
Boys who kiss will soon tell all.
singin’ Green, green rocky road
Promenadein’ green
Tell me who ya love,
Tell me who ya love.
Ya better tell me honey
Tell me who ya love
Ya better tell be baby
Tell me who ya love
Oh can’t ya tell me who ya love,
Ya better tell me who ya love.
