Intro: F  Am  Gm  C

Verse:
F                             Am
I'm comin' home, I've done my time
         Cm               D7           Gm
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine
                   Bbm             F               Dm
If you received my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free
G7                               Bbm                C7
Then you'll know just what to do if you still want me
Bbm                C7
If you still want me

Chorus:
F                             Am
Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
          Cm                        D    D7   Gm
It's been three long years, do you still want me
                Bbm                F   A   Dm
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
      F               F  
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Dm               D
Put the blame on me

Bridge:
   Gm7           Bbm            G7        C7      F     -Dm Gm C7-
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Verse:
F                          Am
Bus driver please look for me
        Cm               D7               Gm
Cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see
                    Bbm            F                  Dm
I'm really still in prison and my love she holds the key
G7                              Bbm             C7
A simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free
Bbm                   C7
I wrote and told her please

Chorus:
F                             Am
Tie a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree
          Cm                        D    D7   Gm
It's been three long years, do you still want me
                Bbm                F   A   Dm
If I don't see a ribbon round the ole oak tree
      F               F  
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Dm               D
Put the blame on me

Bridge:
   Gm7           Bbm            G7        C7      F     -Dm Gm C7-
If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the ole oak tree

Now the whole damn bus is cheerin' and I can't believe I see
F Gm7            Bbm                 G7  C7  F    Am Cm D Gm
A hundred yellow ribbons 'round the ole oak tree

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
