Land of the Silver Birch

August 6, 2018

中文版:銀舟綠波

這首歌是加拿大的傳統歌謠,1920年時開始變成大家耳熟能詳的歌曲。內容是在形容在敘述加拿大的自然景色,並表達思念情懷。

 

這首歌有趣的地方是可以和另一首曲調完全不一樣的 “Canoe Song” 一起合音。請參考YouTube影片。從 30秒地方開始才是 “Land of Silver Birch", 影片後半段可以聽到這兩首歌的和聲。

 

版本1
Land of the silver birch

Home of the beaver

Where still the mighty moose

Wanders at will

Blue lake and rocky shore

I will return once more

Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, bo-oo-oom

 

High on a rocky ledge.  

I¹ll build my wigwam

Close to the water¹s edge.  

Silent and still

Blue lake and rocky shore

I will return once more

Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, bo-oo-oom

 

My heart grows sick for thee.   

Here in the lowlands

I will return to thee,   

hills of the north

Blue lake and rocky shore

I will return once more

Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, Boom-diddy-ah-da, bo-oo-oom

 

 

版本2

Land of the Silver Birch,
Home of the beaver,
Where stands the mighty moose,
Wanders at will,

Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom.

 

My heart is sick for thee,
Here in the low lands,
I will return to you,
Hills of the north.

Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom.

 

Swift as a silver fish,
Canoe of birch bark,
Thy mighty waterways,
Carry me forth.

Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom.

 

There where the blue lake lies,
I’ll set my wigwam,
Close to the water’s edge,
Silent and still.

Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom didi ah da,
Boom.
