#INTRO: C  Em  Dm  G

[C]I'm comin' home, I've done my [Em]time

It's been [Gm]three long years, do you s[A]till [A7]want [Dm]me

[C]Bus driver please look for [Em]me
Cause I [Gm]couldn't bear to [A7]see what I might [Dm]see
I'm really still in [Fm]prison and my [C]love she holds the [Am]key
[D7]A simple yellow ribbon's what I [Fm6]need to set me [G7]free
[Fm6]I wrote and told her [G7]please
