【听歌练听力】Thanksgiving Song: 《Take Me Home, Country Roads》

AP33912 2021-11-24 08:51:27 ( reads)
这两天近六千万北美人在回家路上。七十年代有个叫邓诺夫与未婚妻在马里兰州开车被一处美景吸引而写下这曲子,开头歌词里用其家乡州名,而后改为 West Virginia , 因为他觉得同为四音节的西维吉尼亚更有乐感。后来歌唱家John Denver (见下面video)也做了修改,终成经典。俺的学唱最后一段把邓诺夫家乡州加回去,因为没有这一州就没有感恩Thanksgiving Day。

你写的五个English words (names are hard to write)也在这短诗里:
驱车坐爱枫林旁
一山一河丹佛唱
丛中鹿儿跳怪舞
WV 珍珠多芬芳
金秋丰收南瓜州
火鸡大餐献感恩

Happy Thanksgiving to All 

《Take Me Home, Country Roads》
Song by Bill Danoff/John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, (#1) 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 mama
Take me home, country roads
All my memories gather 'round her
Miner's ( #2), (#3) 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 mama
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
Drivin' down the road, I get a feelin'
That I should've been home yesterday, yesterday
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, (down) country roads
Take me home, (down) country roads

--ended for Denver--

Extra points for Danoff (find out his home state?):with my 2-words edit below:

I hear her voice in the mornin' hour, she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin' down the road, I get a feelin'
That I should've been home yesterday, yesterday
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
(#4), (#5) mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, (down) country roads
Take me home, (down)

~~~~Thank You~~~~~
