Green Side of the Grass

by Libby L. Allen

A comical song with a reassuring message at the end! The lyrics create a "spoof" on the intricacies of aging. Perfect for those over 50+ years. Great "Over the Hill" song for the young at heart! Hilarious video accompanies my song on YouTube. :)

Album Notes
Lighthearted comical song about the intricacies of aging.
If you’re over 50, you may actually see bits and pieces of yourself in this song/video, or it may make you think of someone else that you know! It is my belief that we are allowed to experience aches, pains, and other ailments to better appreciate our “heavenly” bodies when we are called home. I’m not a professional singer, but decided to perform the vocal on this one.
Be sure to watch my accompanying video on YouTube!
I was inspired to write this song based on a private salutation that was used with a friend. We started out greeting each other on the phone by saying, "How are you?". The other would say ,“fine” ( like everyone always does) but I’d always get to the bottom of how my friend was REALLY feeling because I could tell when he WASN’T doing fine by the tone of his voice. As a private joke, when either of us would ask the other how we were doing, we turned our overused greeting response of "fine" into a greeting response of, "At least I’m on the green side of the grass", always followed by a laugh! Since turning the big “50” this year, I got the idea to write a comical song about all of the many ailments that come about as we age (since I’m already experiencing some of them myself!), so I created the words to my song “Green Side of the Grass”. The majority of my friends are over 50 and they’ve shared a lot of stories!!! Nonetheless, the day I finished the lyrics, I picked up the phone to call my friend to read them him, but I got side-tracked and didn’t get to make the call. Come to find out, my friend had been killed in a car accident and had passed away. So in memory of my dear friend, Lee R. “Butch” Callahan, Jr., I hope you enjoy my song and video, “Green Side of the Grass”. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my friends and family who continuously contribute photographs for my ongoing projects.
Be Blessed,
Libby :)

I loved the song as soon as I heard it. I would like to have the music and words to learn and sing some time at one of our Senior Adult meetings.

Thank God I'm Here (On This Side of the Green Grass"
I like to do music for my era. I'm 66 and I like to do funny things like "Old People" to make people laugh and also think. This is perfect. I put a link to it on our high school website - Our 50th coming up and we've lost 60 people of our 235. Might like to do this for our reunion - in 14 - IF I'm still on this side of the Green Grass. LOL Maybe I'll tape it for them.
I alos plan to do "He's Got You with humor - like a flash to what "He" looks like after 50 years.
Keep up your good work. Glad I found your site. I like several songs there.

GREAT song! How can I get sheet music - piano accompaniment along with lyrics? This is a great song to sing at Senior gatherings!
