Yellow Ribbon

Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon 

She wore it in the spring time, in the early month of May 

And if you asked her why the heck she wore it 

She'd say she wore it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Far away 

Far away 

She wore it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Around the block she pushed a baby carriage 

She pushed it in the spring time, in the early month of May 

And if you asked her why the heck she pushed it 

She'd say she pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Far away 

Far away 

She pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Behind the door, her father kept a shotgun 

She kept it in the spring time, in the early month of May 

And if you asked her why the heck she kept it 

She'd say she kept it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Far away 

Far away 

She kept it for her soldier who was far, far away 

Around his grave she laid the pretty flowers 

She laid them in the spring time, in the early month of May 

And if you asked her why the heck she laid them 

She'd say she laid them for her soldier who was far, far away 

Far away 

Far away 

She laid them for her soldier who was far, far away
