Matthew (馬修) - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

Had an uncle named Matthew

 

Was his fathers only boy

 

Born just south of Colby Kansas

 

Was his mothers pride and joy

Yes and joy was just the thing that he was raised on

Love was just the way to live and die

 

Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield

 

Blue just a Kansas summer sky

 

All the stories that he told me

 

Back when I was just a lad

 

All the memories that he gave me

 

All the good times that he had

 

Growing up a Kansas farmboy

 

Life was mostly having fun

 

Riding on his Daddys shoulders

 

Behind a mule beneath the sun

Yes and joy was just the thing that he was raised on

 

Love was just the way to live and die

 

Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield

 

Blue is just a Kansas summer sky

 

Well I guess there were some hard times

 

And I'm told some years were lean

 

They had a storm in forty-seven

 

A twister came and stripped them clean

 

He lost the farm and lost his family

 

He lost the wheat and lost his home

 

But he found the family Bible

 

Faith as solid as a stone

Yes and joy was just the thing that he was raised on

 

Love was just the way to live and die

 

Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield

 

Blue just a Kansas summer sky

 

So he came to live at our house

 

And he came to work the land

 

He came to ease my Daddys burden

 

And he came to be my friend

 

So I wrote this down for Matthew

 

And it's for him the song is sung

 

Riding on his Daddy's shoulders

 

Behind a Mule beneath the sun

Yes and joy was just the thing that he was raised on

 

Love was just the way to live and die

 

Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield

 

Bluewas just a Kansas summer sky

Yes and joy was just the thing that he was raised on

 

Love was just the way to live and die

 

Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield

 

Blue just a Kansas summer sky
