Перевод песни Johnny Cash – Monteagle Mountain

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
There's a stretch of Highway on Interstate 24 between Nashville and Chattanooga
That's claimed many trucker's life
And your life is in your hands when you start down that long steep grade
On Monteagle Mountain
I just rolled out of Nashville in my big rig heading south
My eyes are on fire feels like cotton in my mouth
My whole body's aching but I got to make them big wheels roll
I got to be in Florida by tomorrow morning with a full heavy load
I got to get past Atlanta as soon as I can tonight
I got to try to dodge the scales and stay out of Smoky's sight
But there's one big thing standing like a nightmare in my way
I got to top Monteagle Mountain a little bit later today
Going down Monteagle Mountain on I-24
It's hell for a trucker when the devil's at your door
He'll tempt you and tell you come on let her roll
Because the mountain wants your rig and trucker, I want your soul
When I started down Monteagle the brakes just wouldn't hold
I knew I was in trouble and about to lose control
The runaway ramp was waiting I saw the warning sign
I said Lord help me make it, have mercy on this soul of mine
Well I ploughed into that runaway ramp and I could feel that big truck groan
My life flashed right before my eyes and for a minute I thought I was gone
But when the smoke cleared I thanked God that I was still alive
Because when there's a runaway on Monteagle some truckers don't survive
Yeah many a good man had lost his life on Monteagle Mountain it's a long steep
Many good hard working boys have gone over the side, watch out for Monteagle
