Lou Christie Yellow River Lyrics

So long boy, you can take my place,
got my papers, I've got my pay,
so pack my bags and I'll be on my way,
to Yellow River.

Put my gun down,
the war is won,
fill my glass now,
the time has come,
I'm going back to the place I love,
Yellow River.

Yellow River, Yellow River is in my mind and in my eyes.
Yellow River, Yellow River is in my blood,
it's the place I love.

Got no time for explanations, got no time to lose,
tomorrow night you'll find me sleeping underneath the moon at Yellow River.

Cannon fire lingers in my mind,
I'm so glad that I'm still alive,
and I've been gone for such a long time, Yellow River.
I remember, the nights were cool,
I can still see the water pool,
and I remember the girl that I knew,
from Yellow River.
