Traditional Lyrics

兎追いし 彼の山
小鮒釣りし 彼の川
夢は今も 巡りて
忘れ難き 故郷

如何にいます 父母
恙無しや 友がき
雨に風に つけても
思い出づる 故郷

志を 果たして
いつの日にか 帰らん
山は靑き 故郷
水は淸き 故郷

Translation:

I chased after rabbits on that mountain.
I fished for minnow in that river.
I still dream of those days even now
Oh, how I miss my old country home.

Father and mother―are they doing well?
Is everything well with my old friends?
When the rain falls, when the wind blows,
I stop and recall of my old country home.

Some day when I have done what I set out to do,
I'll return home one of these days
Where the mountains are green, my old country home,
Where the waters are clear, my old country home.
