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, growin’ like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories, gathered round her
Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eyes

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice in the mornin’ hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin’ 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 momma
Take me home, country roads

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, country roads

One thought on “Take Me Home, Country Roads”

  1. 1979年,邓小平访美,约翰·丹佛在肯尼迪中心为邓小平献唱的就是这首歌,从此,中美关系进入发展的快车道。直到今天,80%以上的中国部级儿孙辈拥有了美国绿卡或公民身份,并将大量以牺牲中国环境和剥削中国劳工获得的巨额资产转移到美国,充分的在中美发展两国关系中受益。
    乡村小路,这条通往美国的路走的很不简单呐。
