Green, Green Grass of Home (1966) – Tom Jones (Curly Putman)

A man returns to his hometown where his loved ones eagerly await his arrival. A gospel choir commemorates the joyous occasion. His neighbors and old friends will be excited to see him again after all these years. He smiles at the thought of their welcoming embraces, and basks in the familiarity of the home where he was raised. He’ll take a walk with Mary later that day, maybe enjoy a picnic on the grass . . . or so he thinks. He awakens from his dream to the reality that is his death row prison cell. Although he has come to terms with his impending execution at dawn, he still feels a tinge of despair. Yet, he can face death bravely in the knowledge that he’ll be home soon, where he’ll rest in peace “‘neath the green, green grass of home.”
