Перевод песни Chris Ledoux – Night Rider's Lament

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
One night while I was out a-ridin'
The graveyard shift, midnight 'til dawn
The moon was bright as a readin' light
For a letter from an old friend back home
And he asked me, why do you ride for your money
Tell me why do you rope for short pay
You ain't a-gettin' nowhere, and you're losin' your share
Boy, you must've gone crazy out there
He said last night I ran on to Jenny
And she's married and she has a good life
Boy, you sure missed the track, when you never came back
She's the perfect professional's wife
And she asked me, why does he ride for his money
Tell me why does he rope for short pay
He ain't a-gettin' nowhere, and he's losin' his share
Boy, he must've gone crazy out there
Aw, but they've never seen the Northern Lights
They've never seen a hawk on the wing
They've never spent spring at the Great Divide
And they've never heard ol' camp cookie sing
So I read up the last of my letter
And I tore off the stamp for black Jim
And when Billy rode up to relieve me
He just looked at my letter and grinned
And he said, now why do they ride for their money
Tell me why do they ride for short pay
They ain't a-gettin nowhere, and they're losin' their share
Boy, they must have gone crazy out there
Son, they all must be crazy out there
