Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Tie a yellow ribbon on the old oak tree
You do a dopaso, do you still want me?
Back to your own, do an allemande thar, men swing in and star
Slip the clutch, left allemande, gonna weave around that land
Go in and out and then promenade her on home
It's been three long year, do you still want me?
I'm coming home, tie that ribbon


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru four hands around you know
Go all the way, you do a right & left thru, you know
Dive thru and pass thru and square thru 3 hands
You *clover flow, go all the way you know
You swing your corner girl and then you promenade her on home
It's been three long year, do you still want me?
Tie that yellow ribbon, I'm coming home

(Circle left)

*Clover Flow: Couples facing out cloverleaf, couples facing in pass thru. Couples that cloverleafed then pass thru and the couples that passed thru then cloverleaf.

Tie A Yellow Ribbon
 
 

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?
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 tell her please

Oh tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
It's been three long years, do you 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

Lyrics by Irwin Levine and Larry Brown.
Recorded by Tony Orlando & Dawn.
