Sutter's Mill - Dan Fogelberg (Chinese translation) lyrics
EN: In the spring of forty-seven,
EN: So the story, it is told,
EN: Old john sutter went to the mill site
EN: Found a piece of shining gold.
EN: Well, he took it to the city
EN: Where the word, like wildfire, spread.
ZH: 这个词，像野火般蔓延、 传染的地方。
EN: And old john sutter soon came to wish he'd
EN: Left that stone in the river bed.
EN: For they came like herds of locusts
EN: Every woman, child and man
ZH: 每一个妇女、 儿童和男人
EN: In their lumbering conestogas
EN: They left their tracks upon the land.
EN: Some would fail and some would prosper
EN: Some would die and some would kill
EN: Some would thank the lord for their deliverance
EN: And some would curse john sutter's mill.
EN: Well, they came from new york city,
EN: And they came from alabam'
ZH: 他们从阿拉巴马来 '
EN: With their dreams of finding fortunes
EN: In this wild unsettled land.
EN: Well, some fell prey to hostile arrows
EN: As they tried to cross the plains.
EN: And some were lost in the rocky mountains
EN: With their hands froze to the reins.
EN: Well, some pushed on to california
EN: And others stopped to take their rest.
EN: And by the spring of eighteen-sixty
EN: They had opened up the west.
EN: And then the railroad came behind them
EN: And the land was plowed and tamed,
EN: When old john sutter went to meet his maker,
EN: He'd not one penny to his name.
EN: And some would curse john sutter's mill
EN: Some men's thirsts are never filled.
