It's an awesome song now I'm gonna be thinking of it all day. I remember when this yellow ribbon all started. I think it was for our prisoners held captive in Lebanon wasn't it? Mighty fine gesture I remember

We are putting so many ribons of so many colors I can't remember what that one was for.

It was the Embassy hostages in Iran...I still remember it very well, cause the Canadian Ambassador in Iran at that time forged some Canadian passports for US citizens he knew in town that were not captured and gave them all Canadian passports and got them out..He was celebrated as a hero and he simply said, he thought nothing of it and would do it all over again...

Love this song; it has always been my favorite due to the sentiment of the girl actually waiting.
I am an incurable romantic.;))

This probably makes me a geek but I always loved Tony Orlando and Dawn and especially this song.

Thom, It wasn't meant to be a correction at all..I simply answered your question...maybe I went beyond the call of duty on this one...lol

Great song! I must confess I have Tony Orlando and Dawn's greatest hits on CD. I like "Who's in the Strawberry Patch with Sally." ;-) I am glad someone else had their song stuck in their head.

I remember of this old song which melody I liked a lot but the lyrics I wasn't able to understand. I was a young girl and my English was very bad. (well it's only bad now :-)). I like the photo;it goes great with the song.
