Tony Orlando & Dawn - Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
Tekst en muziek: Irwin Levine en L. Russell Brown
(1973)






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



Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon ’round the old oak tree
It’s been three long years
Do you still want me
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



Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon ’round the old oak tree
It’s been three long years
Do you still want me
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”



Now the whole damned bus is cheerin’
And I can’t believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons ’round the old oak tree



I’m comin’ home, hmm



Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree



Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree



Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree
