Marilyn Monroe – River Of No Return lyrics
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 for ever to be lost in the stormy sea
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 [ no return, no return ]
I lost my love on the river and for ever my heart will yearn
Gone gone for ever down THE RIVER OF NO RETURN
Wail-a-ree wail-a-re-e-ee
She'll/He'll never return to me! [ no return, no return, no return ]

    I watched River of No Return back in the '60s. The movie and the song touched my heart. I was in love with a boy. The first kiss I was ever given was given to me by him. I fell in Iove with him. He was 13 Y/O and I was 14. We ended up going in different directions. He was an over the road truck driver. I become a nurse. 23 years later I ended my marriage in divorce and several months later I learned My true love was divorced. We reconnected. And had a wonderful
    awesome live, traveling, got my CDL's drove an 18 wheeler. Married for 29 years. His health over the years put a large road block, on everything. He died in July 2015. This song holds many bad and good memories on our trips. We traveled on the River of No Return. Lots of rocks and bumps along the way. Remember, as the song says Lost in the Stormy Sea. Wail-ree - Wail-ree. This is very good movie that I would like to encourage to see.
