Roger Miller Month: Roy Clark - The Green Green Grass of Home

We posted a couple of different versions of this song by Joe Tex last month, so I thought it only appropriate that we post this Homer and Jethro-esque rewrite of "Green Green Grass of Home", written by Roger & Roy, and performed on the only really good Roy Clark album I know about, Roy Clark Live! on Dot, ca. 1972.

"That's Roger's.  I got it from him. I added a few lines to it but the whole premise of the song was his." Roy Clark
