Take Me Home, Country Roads

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees:
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place I belong,
West Virginia, Mountain mamma,
Take me home, country roads.

All my memories gather round her,
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place I belong,
West Virginia, Mountain mamma,
Take me home, country roads.

I hear her voice in the morning hours,
She calls me.
The radio reminds me of my home Far away,
And driving down the road,
I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.
Country roads, take me home,
To the place I belong,
West Virginia, Mountain mamma,
Take me home, country roads.

Country roads, take me home,
To the place I belong,
West Virginia, Mountain mamma,
Take me home, country roads.

Take me home,country roads.
Take me home, country roads.

歌词大意

  西弗吉尼亚,简直就象天堂一样——在那里可以看到蓝岭及雪兰多河。那里的生活源远流长,比大树悠久,比高山年少,如微风渐进。乡村路,请带我回到属于我的家——西弗吉尼亚,乡村路,请带我回家。
  我一直想着我妈妈,她是个矿工的太太从来没有见过大海。矿场上的灰尘总是将天空染成黑色。在回忆中,我仿佛品尝到了以前常喝的家里自制的酒。想到这些,不禁潸然泪下。
  我听到她在早晨呼唤我。收音机的声音使我想起远方的家乡。就在我开车回家的路上,我有一种早就该回家的感觉
