Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree

on Three Young Idols (1974), The Definitive Collection (1973)

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 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
Oh, 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
Oh, 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
Now the whole damn bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the ole oak tree
I'm coming home, mm-hmm
(Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree

Was it the song you were looking for? Yes 🥰

I was looking for this song with only the lyrics "If you still want me". Heard it in my art class, and I knew I had to have this song before the summer. Thank god I used this website
