It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organiser,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.

We wear a yellow ribbon
We wear it near our heart
We wear it for our troops
While we are far apart.

It's a symbol of our Love
It's a symbol of our Pride
And we'll wear a Yellow Ribbon
Until they're back by our side.

So for all of our Armed Forces
Lets Us, that's Me and You
Wear a Yellow Ribbon
For our heroes, Brave & True.
