RIVER OF NO RETURN (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "River Of No Return" (1954) Starring Robert Mitchum and Marilyn Monroe All songs: Music by Lionel Newman / Lyrics by Ken Darby ********** RIVER OF NO RETURN Performed by Tennessee Ernie Ford (No return, no return, no return, no return) There is a river called the River of No Return (No return) Sometimes it's peaceful and sometimes wild and free Love is a trav'ler on the River of No Return (No return, no return) Swept on for ever to be lost in the stormy sea Wail-a-ree (Wail-a-ree) I can hear the river call (No return, no return ) Where the roarin' waters fall Wail-a-ree (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 (No return, no return) Gone, gone for ever down the River of No Return (No return) Wail-a-ree, wail-a-re-e-ee She'll never return to me (No return, no return, no return, no return, no return........FADE ) ********** ONE SILVER DOLLAR Performed by Marilyn Monroe One silver dollar, bright silver dollar Changing hands, changing hands Endlessly rollin', wasted and stolen Changing hands, changing hands Spent for a baby's trinket Won by a gambler's lust Pierced by an outlaw's bullet And lost in the blood red dust One silver dollar, bright silver dollar Changing hands, changing hands Love is a shining dollar Bright as a church bell's chime Gambled and spent and wasted And lost in the dust of time Ooh-aah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh One silver dollar, worn silver dollar Changing hearts, changing lives, changing hands ********** I'M GONNA FILE MY CLAIM Performed by Marilyn Monroe I've looked around the country and I've seen it all And what I want, I'm ready to name It's big and strong and handsome and it's six feet tall I'm gonna file my claim I struck a real bonanza at his ruttin' ranch But what he's got I'm ready to take He's worth a fancy fortune, but it's not in cash I'm gonna file my claim I got the fever, oooohhh the fever But not for gold in the ground I want the title to somethin' vital That I can throw my fences around A gal should never hustle with a pickin' pan To dig for gold, that isn't her game I find the man that's found it, then I get that man Who's gonna help me file my claim I gotta file my claim Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, lookin' for nuggets? Uuummmmm, mush! A-B-C-D, who's gonna file me under love There ain't a man, not a single man There ain't a man alive who wouldn't trade his gold For what it takes to stay in the game So, have it filed and spend it 'fore you get too old Who's gonna help me file my claim Who's gonna help me, help, help me Who's gonna help me file my claim........tonight! ********** DOWN IN THE MEADOW Performed by Marilyn Monroe When Mister South Wind sighs in the pine Old Mister Winter whimpers and whines Down in the meadow, under the snow April is teachin' green things to grow When Mister West Wind hums in the glade Old Mister Summer nods in the shade Down in the meadow, under the brook Catfish are waitin' for the hook Old Lady Blackbird flirts with the scarecrow Scarecrow is wavin' at the Moon Old Mister Moon makes hearts ev'rywhere Go bump, bump with the magic of June When Mister East Wind shouts overhead Then all the leaves turn yellow and red Down in the meadow, corn stocks are high Pumpkins are ripe and ready for pie ********** DOWN IN THE MEADOW (Reprise) Performed by Marilyn Monroe Old Lady Blackbird flirts with the scarecrow Scarecrow is wavin' at the Moon Old Mister Moon makes hearts ev'rywhere Go bump, bump with the magic of June When Mister North Wind rolls on the breeze Old Father Christmas trims all the trees Down in the meadow, snow softly gleams Earth goes to sleep and smiles in her dreams ********** RIVER OF NO RETURN (Reprise) Performed by Marilyn Monroe Umm-umm-umm If you listen you can hear it call, wail-a-ree (Wail-a-ree) 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 ) 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-ree), wail-a-re-ee-eee He'll never return to me (No return, no return) Never! ********** All songs transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2009)
