I hear her voiceIn the mornin' hour she calls meThe radio reminds me of my home far awayAnd drivin' down the road i get a feelin'That i should have been home yesterday, yesterdayCountry roads, take me homeTo the place i belongWest Virginia, mountain mommaTake me home, country roadsCountry roads, take me homeTo the place i belongWest Virginia, mountain mommaTake me home, country roads

Take Me Home Country Road


Life is old there,

Older than the trees ,

Younger than the mountains,

Growin' like a breeze


It is impossible that

John didn't miss his

lovely hometown.


Misty taste of moonshine

Teardrops in my eye


It expresses John’s strong

feeling of going back to his

homework.


I hear her voice

In the morning hour she calls me


You can imagine how much

he thirst to go back home.


归去来兮

田园将芜胡不归


Homesickness is a simple and holy feeling

to everyone who was away from home.

Please cherish present time!
