Elton John - "Yellow River" lyrics

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
