White Cloud Songs to Send Off Liu the Sixteenth Into a Group of Mountains

白 云 歌 送 刘 十 六 归 山
楚 山 秦 山 皆 白 云
白 云 处 处 长 随 君。
长 随 君, 君 入 楚 山 里
云 亦 随 君 渡 湘 水。
湘 水 上, 女 罗 衣
白 云 堪 卧 君 早 归。
Bai Yun Ge Song Liu Shi Liu Gui Shan

Chu shan qin shan jie bai yun
Bai yun chu chu chang sui jun.
Chang sui jun, jun ru chu shan li
Yun yi sui jun du xiang shui.
Xiang shui shang, nu luo yi
Bai yun kan wo jun zao gui.

 

White Cloud Songs to Send Off Liu the Sixteenth Into a Group of Mountains

Chu mountains, Qin mountains all have white clouds
Everywhere the white clouds follow you.
Follow you as you enter inside the Chu mountains
Clouds also follow you across the Xiang River.
On the Xiang water they wear nuluo clothes
Laying down in the white clouds causes an early return.
