​Greener Pastures

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Sadness in a Song (1962).

You'll be leavin' me to look for greener pastures
It really isn't love that you are after
You would climb the highest hill
If you thought you'd find a thrill
And the greener pastures on the other side

I guess I'll be the next to fall in line
With all the broken hearts you've left behind
I can tell the thrill is gone and you'll soon be movin' on
You've got greener pastures on your mind

You'll be leavin' me to look for greener pastures
It really isn't love that you are after
You would climb the highest hill
If you thought you'd find a thrill
And the greener pastures on the other side

I don't know why I thought that I could win
I've seen you do it time and time again
You will trade a love that's true for a thrill from someone new
And those greener pastures win again

You'll be leavin' me to look for greener pastures
It really isn't love that you are after
You would climb the highest hill
If you thought you'd find a thrill
And the greener pastures on the other side
And the greener pastures on the other side
