The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

    I think more of the idea of a G.I. coming home in a closed box. An escort guard (body chaser) in dress uniform with a folded flag and a chaplain. We buried enough of them this way when I was a younger man. Notifying families in person was the worse part, but a necessary task.

    A man returned to his old hometown where his family met him as he got off the train. then he awoke in prison and realized he was only dreaming. He realized the only way his family will get together to see him is at is funeral when they bury him, with the padre there beneath the green green grass of home.
