The River Of No Return

"Your First True Love"

Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Iโ€™d like to learn to live primitively

And see how this land used to be

Before the freeways and factories

The way this world was meant to be

Where I can't be seen by the satellites

Under the trees and out of sight

I'd like to get lost and fall asleep every night

Lookinโ€™ up at the starry sky

Someday Iโ€™d like to go to the middle of Idaho

On the map I can see itโ€™s mostly green

Iโ€™d head northwest from Salmon, make my way to White Bird

And see just what itโ€™s like in between

If I ventured a guess, thereโ€™d be so much to learn

In the wilderness, along the river of no return

Iโ€™d like to get back to nature, discover my roots

Read some Thoreau, break in my hiking boots

Iโ€™d live off the land with nothing to lose

Try to understand and pay my dues

With clean air to breathe and clean water to drink

Away from the noise where I could hear myself think

Who knows maybe Iโ€™d never come back

Iโ€™d live the rest of my life off the beaten path

Someday Iโ€™d like to go to the middle of Idaho

On the map I can see itโ€™s mostly green

Iโ€™d head northwest from Salmon, make my way to White Bird

And see just what itโ€™s like in between

If I ventured a guess, thereโ€™d be so much to learn

In the wilderness, along the river of no return

Someday Iโ€™d like to go to the middle of Idaho

On the map I can see itโ€™s mostly green

Iโ€™d head northwest from Salmon, make my way to White Bird

And see just what itโ€™s like in between

If I ventured a guess, thereโ€™d be so much to learn

In the wilderness, along the river of no return
