Yellow Ribbon

Marching Jody

Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon,
She wore it in the springtime, in the merry month of May.
And if you asked her why the heck she wore it,
She wore it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine) who was far, far away.
Far away,
Far away.
She wore it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away.

Around the block she pushed a baby carriage,
She pushed it in the springtime, in the merry month of May.
And if you asked her why the heck she pushed it,
She pushed it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away.
Far away,
Far away.
She pushed it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away

Behind the door, her daddy kept a shotgun.
He kept it in the springtime, in the merry month of May.
And if you asked him why the heck he kept it,
He kept it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away.
Far away,
Far away.
He kept it for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away.

Around his grave she laid the pretty flowers,
She laid them in the springtime, in the merry month of May.
And if you asked her why the heck she laid them,
She laid them for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away.
Far away,
Far away.
She laid them for her (Sailor Airman, Soldier, Marine)who was far, far away. (no repeat)
