|Performed By:||Marilyn Monroe (1954), Tennessee Ernie Ford (1954)|
There is a river called the river of no return; Sometimes it's peaceful, and sometimes wild and free! Love is a trav'ler on the river of no return, Swept on forever to be lost in a stormy sea. (Bridge:) Wail-a-ree I can hear the river call (no return, no return) Where the roarin' waters fall, Wail-a-ree I can hear my lover call, "Come to me" I lost my love on the river, and forever my heart will yearn; Gone, gone forever down the river of no return. Wail-a-ree wail-a-ree You'll never return to me! (no return, no return, no return)
