Casey's Last Ride (凱西的最後旅程) - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Casey joins the hallow sound of silent people walking down

 

The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below

 

Following their footsteps through the neon darkened corridors

 

Of silent desperation never speaking to a soul

 

The poison air he's breathing has a dirty smell of dying

 

Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain

 

But Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes

 

Of the clicking of the turnstyle and the rattle of his chain

 

Oh she said Casey it's been so long since I've seen you

 

Here she said just a kiss to make a body smile

 

See she said I put on new stockings just to please you

 

Lord she said Casey can you only stay a while

 

Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden Crown

 

For something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bones

 

Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men

 

Who reach for anything thay can to keep from going home

 

Standing in the corner Casey drinks his pint of bitter

 

Never glancing in the mirror at the people passin' by

 

And he stumbles as he's leavin' and he wonders if the reason

 

Is the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye

 

Oh she said I suppose you seldom think about me

 

Now she said now that you've a family of your own

 

Still she said it's so blessed good to feel your body

 

Lord she said Casey it's a shame to be alone

 

Oh she said Casey it's been so long since I've seen you

 

Here she said just a kiss to make a body smile

 

See she said I put on new stockings just to please you

 

Lord she said Casey can you only stay a while

 

Lord she said Casey it's a shame to be alone
