Whiskey Basin Blues - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

On a snow covered night

Up in eastern Wyoming

Another lazy day

Lookin' for the sun

In a draughty old cabin

Outside a whiskey basin

Another shining light

And a good man on the run


There's a lady back in Laramie

And her reason no one else can see

For him to spend

The winter on his own


Nothing much for him to do tomorrow

Just a matter of survival

Another friendly fight

In a life chocked full of fun


It's a special kind of medicine


And all that you can do is win


Though it tastes so sweet

You can refuse


Put your heart on the table

Fill your fountain with moonshine

Another empty case of

The Whiskey Basin blues
