[C] So long boy you can  
[Em] take my place 

[Am] Got my papers I  
[Em] got my pay 

So  
[Am] pack my bags and I'll  
[Dm] be on my way 

To  
[G7] Yellow River 

[C] Put my gun down the  
[Em] war is won 

[Am] Fill my glass high the  
[Em] time has come 

I'm  
[Am] going back to the  
[Dm] place that I love 

[G7] Yellow River... 

Chorus: 

[C] Yellow River Yellow River 

Is  
[Em] in my mind and  
[G] in my eyes 

[C] Yellow River Yellow River 

Is  
[Em] in my blood it's the  
[G7] place I love 

[Am] Got no time for explanations  
[G] got no time to lose 

[Dm] Tomorrow night you'll find me sleeping 

[G] Underneath the moon at  
[Am] Yellow River  
[Am]  
[F]  
[G] 

Chorus 

[C] Cannon fire lingers  
[Em] in my mind 

[Am] I'm so glad I'm  
[Em] still alive 

And  
[Am] nothin’s gone for  
[Dm] such a long time 

From  
[G7] Yellow River 

Chorus 

[C] I remember the  
[Em] nights were cool 

[Am] I can still see the  
[Em] water pool 

And  
[Am] I remember the  
[Dm] girl that I knew 

From  
[G7] Yellow River
