So long, boy, you can take my place
I got my papers, I 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 goin' 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 that I love

Got no time for explanations, got no time to lose
Tomorrow night you'll find me sleepin' underneath the moon 
And Yellow River

Cannon fire lingers in my mind
I'm so glad 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
