Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree

Performer(s): Dawn (featuring Tony Orlando)

I’m coming home
I’ve done my time.
Now I’ve got to know,
What is and isn’t mine.
If you received my letter,
Tellin’ you, I’d soon be free,
Then you’ll know just what to do,
If you still want me,
If you still want me.

Tie a yellow ribbon ‘round the old oak tree
It’s been three long years,
Do you still want me?
If I don’t see a ribbon ‘round the old oak tree,
I’ll stay on the bus,
Forget about us;
Put the blame on me,
If I don’t see a yellow ribbon
‘round the old oak tree.

Bus driver, please,
Look for me,
‘Cause I couldn’t bear,
To see what I might see.
I’m really still in prison,
And my love she holds the key,
A simple yellow ribbon’s what
I need to set me free.
I wrote and told her please


Now, the whole damn bus is cheering,
And I can’t believe I see,
A hundred yellow ribbons
‘round the old oak tree.
