Japanese version of "Country Roads"





Hi today's post is really important for me


The lyrics of "country roads" ( and of course the meaning and the message of this song ) is totally different in Japanese version from English version.


both are incredibly beautiful, wonderful but I like the japanese one more, so wanted to let you know the Japanese lyrics by me writing it in English.


so please enjoy!

Country Roads






country roads 


I have a feeling that this way might take me home




I was dreaming to live without any fear of being alone


hide loneliness, keep myself strong


when I get tired of walking forward and stand still for a while


all the memories gather around my home town are coming up to me, and scold myself----"dont stop, keep going"




country roads 


I have a feeling that this way might take me home




even when I am about to lose my heart, never let tears trickled down


quicken the pace a bit to drive the memories away

country roads 

even I have a feeling that this way might take me home

I won't go

I can't go


country roads

I will back to "normal me" tomorrow

I want to go home, I can't go home

good bye country roads


so this is it.


it's much more sad and painful somehow isn't it?


I think most of us have this feeling in this current world


just hope you to have some time to let tears rolled down by listening to this song




Always with love,
YK

  1. YK your translated version should be the original version! it's great and I wouldn't change a single thing, it's very poetic and beautiful at the same time. Most of us have felt the pain of living life and enduring it's obstacles, this Japanese version is a tear-jerker but a wonderful version!

    The original version is a more uplifting and more cherful sounding here is the original with the lyrics:

    Take Me Home, Country Roads
    Almost heaven, West Virginia,
    Blue Ridge Mountain, Shanandoa River,
    Life is old there, older than the trees,
    Younger than the mountains, blowing 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
    Modest 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
    To the country roads

    I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me
    Radio reminds me of my home far away
    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
    To the country roads

    Take me home, that country road
    Take me home, that country road
