The Yellow Ribbon

One day a soldier left for war
And drove away from home...
It was a very dismal day
As she left alone.
In the Bible we are told
There is a time for peace,
But with man it does not last
And always seems to cease.
So we must fight and defend
Our relatives and land-
In some places we don't know
On mirky mire or sand.
But as she traveled down her street
Her heart was lifted there...
When she saw no tree without
A yellow ribbon fair!
