Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar (The Farm) - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Written by:Dennis Linde

January back in '55 we rode a greyhound bus through the georgia midnight

 

Grandpa was sleeping and the winter sky was clear

 

We hit a bump and his head jerked back a little and he mumbled something

 

He woke up smiling but his eyes were bright with tears he said

I dreamed I was back on the farm

 

Twenty years have passed boy

But the memory still warms me

 

Wild flowers in a mason jar

 

He told me those old stories 'bout that one room cabin in kentucky

 

The smell of rain and the feel of the warm earth in his hands

 

He slowly turned and stared outside

His face was mirrored in the window

 

And his reflection flew across the moonlit land

 

And he dreamed he was back on the farm

 

He tilts his head and listens to the early sounds of morning

 

Wild flowers in a mason jar

 

An old man and an eight year old boy

Rolling down that midnight highway

 

Warm kentucky memories from a winter georgia night

 

I started drifting off and grandpa tucked his coat around me

 

I think I tried to smile as I slowly closed my eyes

 

And I dreamed I was with him on the farm

 

Grandpa I can hear the evening wind out in the corn

 

Wild flowers in a mason jar

 

Wild flowers in a mason jar

 

Wild flowers in a mason jar

 

And the bus rolling through the night
