Missoula

Missoula (Hevly) Versió MP3
I was walkin' one evening in Missoula Montana
Down a dark alleyway covered with snow
A pale moon was glowin' and the mountains sang to me,
Walkin' in Missoula Montana alone.
Una vesprada caminava per Missoula, Montana
baixant un carreró fosc i nevat.
Una lluna pal·lida brillava i les muntanyes em cantaven,
caminant tot sol per Missoula, Montana.

When out from the shadows there stepped close beside me
Smellin' of meadowland, whiskey and home
She said, "Are you tired, my handsome young cowboy,
Of walkin' in Missoula Montana alone?"
Quan sortint de les fosques se'm va acostar una noia
que feia olor de prat, de whisky i de casa.
Preguntà: —Vaquer meu, tan ben plantat, estàs cansat
de caminar tot sol per Missoula, Montana?

I said, "Yes, I'm tired, my feet are all leaden
My body is wretched and aching to lay
If you'll be my lady I'll tell you of a treasure
Buried in the Bitterroot Mountains today
Just waitin' for someone to take it away."
Vaig dir: —Sí, que estic cansat, els peus em pesen com plom;
tinc el cos abatut i delint-se per descansar.
Si seràs la meva xicota et parlaré d'un tresor
enterrat avui a les muntanyes Bitterroot (arrel amarga),
esperant que algú se l'endugui.

She took my hand and we walked out of town
Up the old Rattesnake, frozen and white,
Montana treasure is there for the takin',
High in the mountains where stars shine so bright,
Montana treasure waits for you tonight.
Em va agafar la mà i vam sortir caminant del poble,
pujant el riu Rattlesnake (cascavell), blanc i congelat.
El tresor de Montana hi és perquè se l'endugui:
a l'alta muntanya on els estels brillen tant,
el tresor de Montana t'espera.
