Here the sugar beets are growing
In the black clay farming land
Here the roads are straight and endless
They pass the horizon
And they always bring me something
I find surely nowhere else
It is only here, it's only here
In the countryside

Waor de suukerbieten gruien
Op de zwarte neije grond
Waor de lange rechte wegen
Tot an de horizon
Mij ja altied weer dat brengen
Wat ik närgens vinden kan
As allennig hier, allennig hier
Op 't platteland

Here the little larks are dancing
High in the summer sky
Here I'm lying on the ditch bank
Where I just can sigh or cry
This spot is known by no one
While it's a lovely place
It is only here, it's only here
In the countryside

Waor de leeuwerikkies dansen
Hoog in de zomerlucht
Waor ik in de gruune wiekswal
Zachies schrei of diepe zucht
Gien mense wet dit plekkie
Waor dat zo prachtig kan
As allennig hier, allennig hier
Op 't platteland

And I will never leave here
I'll never go away
I will never leave here
I don't think that would work
I will never leave here
And that fills me with joy
It's only here, it's only here
In the countryside

En ik gao nooit meer weg hier
Ik gao hier nooit meer vort
Ik gao nooit meer weg hier
Ik g'leuf niet dat dat wordt
Ik gao nooit meer weg hier
Ik blief der bliede van
Allennig hier, allennig hier
Op 't platteland

Here the dragonflies are flying
Above water in a ditch
I learn so much 'bout myself
My roots, my ancestry
And I feel so very close here
To the meaning of my life
And that is only here, it's only here
In the countryside

Waor libelles over 't water
Van de aole wieke scheern
Waor ik zoveul van mezölf
En mien komaf kun leern
Waor ik hiel dicht bij de reden
Van mien leben kommen kan
Dat kan allennig hier, allennig hier
Op 't platteland

And I will never leave here
I'll never go away
I will never leave here
I don't think that would work
I will never leave here
And that fills me with joy
It's only here, it's only here, it's only here
In the countryside

En ik gao nooit meer weg hier
Ik gao hier nooit meer vort
Ik gao nooit meer weg hier
Ik g'leuf niet dat dat wordt
Ik gao nooit meer weg hier

Daniël Lohues (1971) is a singer-songwriter from Drenthe. This is a province in the north-east of the Netherlands. He writes his songs in the regional language Drents (derived from Old Saxon or Old Low German: the Germanic language of the Saxons).

Lohues started his musical career as lead singer of the Drents pop band Skik ('fun'). They had hits like 'On the bike'/'Op fietse' (1997) and 'How is that possible'/'Hoe kan dat nou' (1998). But from 2004 onward, Lohues was mainly busy with his solo career. For years he makes theatrical tours, singing the songs from the new albums he releases.

In the years 2006-2010 he released four albums Allennig  I-IV, with hits like 'The benefit of music'/'Baat bij muziek' (2008), 'Here I'm from'/'Hier kom ik weg' (2008) and 'But as long as love will conquer'/'Als de liefde maar blijft winnen' (2008).

Other albums are for example Ericana (2013) and D (2014), with the hit (above song) 'In the countryside'/'Op 't platteland' (2014).

Lohues also writes songs for artists like Guus Meeuwis, Freek de Jonge, Paul de Leeuw, Herman Finkers, Rob de Nijs and The Common Linnets (Ilse de Lange).

Daniël Lohues is known for his love for Drenthe, the countryside and the Drents language. He won the Annie M.G. Schmidt-Award for best theatre song 2006 and an Edison Award for his album 'Use wood'/'Hout moet' (2011).
