George Jones - A Place In The Country

For thirty some odd years he faced a grinder in the city,
Selama tiga puluh tahun yang aneh ia menghadapi penggiling di kota,
hustlin' day in day out just tryin' to survive,
hustlin 'hari demi hari hanya berusaha untuk bertahan hidup,

he bought his wife the finer things,
dia membelikan istrinya barang-barang yang lebih bagus,
and sent his kids to collage,
dan mengirim anak-anaknya ke kolase,
that always took what little bit he tried to put aside,
yang selalu mengambil sedikit yang dia coba sisihkan,

But thru it all he had one thing
Tapi dari semua itu dia punya satu hal

that seemed to keep him going,
yang sepertinya membuatnya terus berjalan,
a dream that someday he could leave this city life behind,
mimpi bahwa suatu hari nanti dia bisa meninggalkan kehidupan kota ini,

I watched his hair turn thin and gray,
Saya menyaksikan rambutnya menjadi tipis dan abu-abu,

but his dream never faded,
tapi mimpinya tidak pernah pudar,

he told me all about it at least a thousand times.
dia mengatakan kepada saya tentang itu setidaknya seribu kali.

He always wanted, a place out in the country,
Dia selalu ingin, tempat di pedesaan,

where the birds sing, in the morning,
tempat burung bernyanyi, di pagi hari,
and the grass is emerald green,
dan rumput berwarna hijau zamrud,

a place where, he could feel the mornin' sunshine,
tempat di mana, dia bisa merasakan sinar matahari pagi,

and sit out in the evenin',
dan duduk di malam hari,

where the air is, fresh and clean.
di mana udaranya segar dan bersih.

It took lots of overtime to keep his wife up with the jonses,
Butuh banyak lembur untuk menjaga istrinya dengan jons,

and more to get his son out of his run-ins with the law,
dan lebih banyak untuk mengeluarkan putranya dari perselisihan dengan hukum,

the more it took the more he gave, never once complaining,
semakin banyak yang dia berikan, tidak pernah mengeluh,

I don't know how he ever stood the pressure of it all.
Saya tidak tahu bagaimana dia bisa menghadapi tekanan dari semua itu.

I never thought he'd make it, but he finally left the city,
Saya tidak pernah berpikir dia akan berhasil, tetapi dia akhirnya meninggalkan kota,

and now he's got that special little place to call his own,
dan sekarang dia punya tempat kecil khusus untuk memanggilnya sendiri,

today I took a ride out in the country just to see him,
hari ini saya mengambil tumpangan di pedesaan hanya untuk melihatnya,

it wasn't hard to find because his name was on the stone.
itu tidak sulit ditemukan karena namanya ada di batu.

He always wanted, a place out in the country,
Dia selalu ingin, tempat di pedesaan,

where the birds sing, in the morning,
tempat burung bernyanyi, di pagi hari,
and the grass is emerald green,
dan rumput berwarna hijau zamrud,

a place where, he could feel the mornin' sunshine,
tempat di mana, dia bisa merasakan sinar matahari pagi,

and sit out in the evenin',
dan duduk di malam hari,

where the air is, fresh and clean.
di mana udaranya segar dan bersih.

He always wanted, a place out in the country,
Dia selalu ingin, tempat di pedesaan,

where the birds sing, in the morning,
tempat burung bernyanyi, di pagi hari,
and the grass is...
dan rumput itu ...
