    Yellow Ribbon

    I've traveled through this country
    And I'll tell you what I've seen
    A million yellow ribbons
    And I wonder what they mean

    It's love and hope and sympathy
    For those who've gone to fight
    But still I know that none of them
    Can make the killing right

    When we see two children fighting
    Don't we try to come between
    Get 'em both to talk
    Instead of acting rough and mean
    We give 'em love and limits
    Say now try to get along
    Then we tell 'em it's alright to kill
    To prove that killing's wrong

    Sometimes your yellow ribbon
    Tries to make me feel ashamed
    Tells me I'm a traitor
    That somehow it's me to blame
    But I can't hide behind it
    Just to prove that I belong
    And I won't be an accomplice
    To a thing I know is wrong

    But I'd wear a yellow ribbon
    For the peace that's in my heart
    I'd wear it for the loved ones
    That should never have to part
    I'd wear it for the wasted lives
    No matter friend or foe
    And I'd wear it for the children
    If they never had to go

    Yes, I've seen your yellow ribbons
    Hanging up all over town
    But I don't think they'll ever buy
    The peace we've never found
    Oh, the guns will all be silent
    And the battle flags all furled
    When we tie a yellow ribbon
    'Round the world

    Yes, the guns will all be silent
    And the battle flags all furled
    When we tie a yellow ribbon
    'Round the world
