So long, boy, you can take my place
I've 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 high, the time has come
I'm going back to the place that 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 -- from 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.
