York Tour III
Our 50th Reunion

After fifty years, York's school colors remain as they once were---green with white trim.  And so, after fifty years, we all came together "to touch the green, green grass of home"...if only for just a little while...
 
"...The old home town looked the same...
      ...as I stepped down from the train...
         ...and there to meet me...
            ...and down the road I looked...
                ...It's good to touch the green, green grass of home..."
 
     "...Yes, they'll all come to meet me...
           ....on their cheeks, smiling sweetly...
               ...It's good to touch the green, green grass of home..."
 
          "...The old house...is still standing...
                ...though the paint is cracked and dry...
                   ...and there's that old oak tree I used to play on...
                      ...down the lane I walked... 
                         ...It's good to touch the green, green grass of home..."
 
               "...Then I wake...and look around me...
                     ...the gray walls that surround me...
                        ...and I realize that I was only dreamin'...
                           ...for there's a guardin' there---a sad old padre...
                              ...arm and arm we walk at daybreak...
                                  ....again, I'll touch the green, green grass of home..."
