TIE A YELLOW RIBBON
TONY ORLANDO & DAWN
CAPO 5th fret
Tabbed by Jim Bauer (jbauer601@hotmail.com)

Note: Originally tabbed by Ray Rickert, I just thought
the version was a little bit difficult to follow...something
with the formatting. In any case, I retabbed it for my own
reference and thought I would post the altered version. Made a
couple of very minor corrections as well.

INTRO: C  Em  Dm  G

verse:
C                             Em
I'm comin' home, I've done my time
         Gm               A7           Dm
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
                   Fm             C               Am
If you received my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free
D7                               Fm6               G7
Then you'll know just what to do if you still want me
Fm6               G7
If you still want me

chorus:
C                             Em
Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
          Gm                        A    A7   Dm
It's been three long years, do you still want me
                Fm                C   E   Am
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
      C               C/G
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Am               A
Put the blame on me

bridge:
   Dm7           Fm6           D7        G7      C     (Am Dm G7)
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

verse:
C                          Em
Bus driver please look for me
        Gm               A7               Dm
Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
                    Fm            C                  Am
I'm really still in prison and my love she holds the key
D7                              Fm6            G7
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
Fm6                  G7
I wrote and told her please

:| chorus & bridge, skipping part in (), then to harmonica solo

over harmonica solo: C  Em  Gm  A A7  Dm  x2

verse:
(slower, single appregios)
        Dm7               Fm6            C               A7
Now the whole damn bus is cheerin' and I can't believe I see
C (normal tempo) Dm7            Fm6                D7  G7  C    Em Gm A Dm
A                hundred yellow ribbons 'round the ole oak tree

coda:
C                                     Em
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree, tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree
Gm                                    A                                    Dm
Tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree, tie a ribbon 'round the ole oak tree

P.S.
I like playing this song barred, but you can of course use
regular fingerings for any or all of these chords. Might be
a tad hard to play barred with capoed 5th fret with say,
heavy gauge bronze. :)
