Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree
 
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 (2x)

Whoa, tie a yellow ribbon 'round the ole 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 ole 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 ole 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 ole 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 ole 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 ole oak tree

(Instrumental break)

Now the whole damned bus is cheerin'
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the ole oak tree
I'm comin' home

(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree, 6x)
