Yellow Ribbon  Utah Phillips

[C]I've traveled through this country
And I'll [G]tell you what I've seen
A million yellow ribbons
And I [C]wonder what they mean
It's [F]love and hope and sympathy
For [C]those who've gone to fight
But [D]still I know that none of them
Can [G]make the killing [G7]right
When we [C]see two children fighting
Don't we [G]try to come between
Get 'em both to talk
Instead of [C]acting rough and mean
We [F]give 'em love and limits
Say now [C]try to get along
Then we [D]tell 'em it's alright to kill
To [G]prove that killing's [G7]wrong
[C]Sometimes your yellow ribbon
Tries to [G]make me feel ashamed
Tells me I'm a traitor
That [C]somehow it's me to blame
But [F]I can't hide behind it
Just to [C]prove that I belong
And [D]I won't be an accomplice
To a [G]thing I know is [G7]wrong
But I'd [C]wear a yellow ribbon
For the [G]peace that's in my heart
I'd wear it for the loved ones
That should [C]never have to part
I'd [F]wear it for the wasted lives
No [C]matter friend or foe
And I'd [D]wear it for the children
If they [G]never had to [G7]go
Yes, I've [C]seen your yellow ribbons
Hanging [G]up all over town
But I don't think they'll ever buy
The [C]peace we've never found
Oh, [F]the guns will all be silent
And the [C]battle flags all furled
When we [G]tie a yellow [G7]ribbon
'Round the [C]world
Yes, the [F]guns will all be silent
And the [C]battle flags all furled
When we [G]tie a yellow [G7]ribbon
'Round the [C]world
