“Tie a Yellow Ribbon”

  

Description from FaeryGoth Chick: For some unknown reason, this song keeps popping up in my mind today :-)

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 telin' you I'd soon be free
Then you'll know just what to do if you still want me
If you still want me

CHORUS:

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 yellow 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:

REPEAT CHORUS

Now the whole damn bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the old oak tree
I'm comin' home

    Very pretty Sarah. I guess I thought this song was about soldiers but it seems like it is about someone who was in prison. I wonder why a bunch of people would be cheering on a bus for someone getting out of prison. I love the yellows!

    Thank you Mary Lou! I guess it can be both options no?

    Lovely pick, Sarah, and perfect for the song (which I remember very well!). Mary Lou, I think the song is about the military personnel…three years was the amount of time someone usually signed up for, hence “I’ve done my time”. Many came back to discover that their loved one had not waited for their return. “If you still want me”. And the “prison” is the mental and emotional one suffered while away serving our country. Also, yellow ribbons have been a symbol to honor our service men and women while we await their return. :D

    thanks for the compliment and the explanation of the meaning behind this song Deb :-)

    Chicky ChaCha says:

    That makes sense Deb. I too appreciate the explanation. I always thought the yellow ribbons were for the soldiers coming home. Our smart AL volunteer Deb D knew!!!!

    Thanks, Deb, for a great explanation of this popular song! I also thought it had to do with prison, but your explanation makes so much sense to me!!! :D
