歌曲歌词[url=]编辑[/url]
《乡村路带我回家》
Take Me Home, Country Roads

乡村路带我回家
by John Denver
[美] 约翰·丹佛 演唱
Almost heaven, West Virginia
简直是天堂,西弗吉尼亚
Blue Ridge Mountain, Shenandoah River
蓝岭山脉,仙纳度河
Life is old there,Older than the trees
古老的生命,比树龄更久远
Younger than the mountains,Growing like a breeze
比群山年轻,象和风一样慢慢生长
Country roads, take me home
乡村路,带我回家
To the place I belong
到我生长的地方
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
西弗吉尼亚,山峦妈妈
Take me home, country roads
乡村路,带我回家
All my memories gather round her
围绕着她的,是我所有记忆
  Miner's Lady stranger to blue water

矿工的情人,没见过大海的人儿
Dark and dusty painted on the sky
烟雾和灰尘,笼罩着天空
Misty taste of moonshine,Tear drops in my eyes
月光朦朦胧胧,我的眼泪汪汪
Country roads, take me home
乡村路,带我回家
To the place I belong
到我生长的地方
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
西弗吉尼亚,山峦妈妈
Take me home, country roads
乡村路,带我回家
I hear her voice in the morning hours,She calls me
早晨她把我呼唤
The radio reminds me of my home far away
无线电广播使我想起遥远的家乡
And driving down the road
驱车沿路而下
I'll get a feeling,That I should have been home,Yesterday, yesterday
我感到我本应昨天就回家,昨天就回家。
Country roads, take me home
乡村路,带我回家
To the place I belong
到我生长的地方
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
西弗吉尼亚,山峦妈妈
Take me home, country roads
乡村路,带我回家......


歌词开始说自己的故乡”简直美如天堂 Almost heaven,“,后来又说”Dark and dusty painted on the sky  烟雾和灰尘,笼罩着天空“,这不是前矛后盾吗?

East, West, home is the best. Thus, hometown is always almost heaven to many people, especially to those who leave away from their hometown for quite a long time in their homesick sentiment, heading to their home on the country road, while the fond memory of that comes to the mind, i.e. blue mountain, green and old tree ...

"Dark and dusty painted on the sky" refers to the reality there. West Virginia is a landlocked place and coal mining is a major industry there. It's not necessary to interpret the verse as the polluted air there, because I don't think that's the intention of the lyric writer's, if readers review the lyric in a whole piece.

In short, "almost heaven" refers to the emotional attachement to the hometown, and "dark and dusty sky" is a touch of the reality there.
