Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree

Tony Orlando & Dawn

I’m coming home, I’ve done my time

Now I’ve got to know what is and isn’t mine

If you received my letter telling you I’d soon be free

Then you’ll know just what to do if you still want me If you still want me



Woah, tie a yellow ribbon ’round the old oak tree

It’s been three long years, do you still want me? (Still want me)

If I don’t see a ribbon ’round the old oak tree

I’ll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me

If I don’t see a yellow ribbon ’round the old oak tree

Bus driver please look for me


‘Cause I couldn’t bear to see what I might see

I’m really still in prison and my love she holds the key

A simple yellow ribbon ‘s what I need to set me free

I wrote and told her, “Please”


(Musical interlude)

Now the whole damn bus is cheerin’

And I can’t believe I see

A hundred yellow ribbons

‘Round the old oak tree (’round the old oak tree)


I’m comin’ home, um-hm

Tie a ribbon ’round the old oak tree (repeat 7 more times)

Oak Tree History and Symbolism  

Oak tree symbolism is found throughout our world and history with examples ranging from the ancient Irish Ogham tree-alphabet letter Dair representing the oak to modern popular place names like Oak Street, Oakville, Oakland, even White Oaks Golf Course.



Oak is one of the most sacred trees, prized by the Celts and Druids. The oak fairy is very powerful, and imparts strength and endurance to any who stay within its aura.

Each oak tree is a very metropolis of fairies, and each acorn has its own sprite. Bringing one into the house is a way to enhance contact with the fairy realm. Oak beams are often used to make doors, but the tree itself is a great portal to the other realms.

The Oak Tree (by anonymous poet)

The oak tree is a brave old tree

It lives to be quite old

It gives good shade in summer

And stands the winter’s cold

The men who build the stately ships

That sail across the sea


Think there’s no wood so strong, so good

As the brave old white oak tree


The Vikings sailed the World in great oak ships.

Wine producers use the bark of the cork oak.

Many animals eat acorns.

What’s an acorn? Well, in a nutshell, it’s an oak tree.

Shakespeare is credited with inventing many words including “gnarled,” first used here in Act 2 of Measure for Measure: Split’st the unwedgeable and gnarled oak.

Here are images from the 1970’s series M*A*S*H which brought mask wearing doctors onto TV.

Major Frank Burns and gold oak leaf


Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake and silver oak leaf

Blake was replaced by a full bird (eagle) colonel.

In the 1994 movie Pulp Fiction The Wolf (Harvey Keitel) offers Jimmie Dimmick (Quentin Tarantino) new bedroom furniture to compensate for some cleaning supplies and ruined shirts and the emergency use of his house. Jimmie wants the gangsters to leave quickly, being anxious that his wife will come home and find a crime scene.

The Wolf negotiates working with a wad of cash: Does your wife like oak?

Jimmie: Oak. Oak is good.

In the 2010 movie ‘The King’s Speech’ during a practice for his coronation inside Westminster Abbey, a highly symbolic scene shows King George VI standing beside then reaching out and touching gold oak leaf filigree.

In the 2011 movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, while the sleuth dabbles in chemistry he addresses his companion, ‘It’s elementree Watson. It’s a hoaks.’

In the 2019 movie ‘Tolkien’ – life story of the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings – the main character gets all spruced up while walking a tree-lined path and yells ‘Oak! Oak!’

In the 2012 movie ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Thorin Oakenshield is the King of the Dwarves under the Lonely Mountain. Compare his name to Norse mythology wherein a symbol for Thor is the Oak tree.

Other tree symbolism is used. On the journey Thorin’s traveling company are all sleeping like logs in a cave when they are captured by goblins, except Bilbo, who escapes and finds the One Ring. The Wizard Gandalf appears and saves the dwarves and they gather in a copse of pine trees.



Copse symbolizes cops, the police, and an acronym for ‘constables on patrol.’ I’ll go out on a limb here and say the double entendre was intended for ‘the cops’.

Branching out, some Europeans worshiped groves of trees – symbolized on Sesame Street with The Muppet character named Grover.

There is the tree in the 2009 movie Avatar.

There’s the actor Chris Pine (Christ pine > Christmas tree).

And there’s Presidential politics; people ‘rooting’ for Trunk … er … Stump … I mean Trump.


Gandalf notices Bilbo is missing: What happened to him? Tell me.

With the ring on, the invisible Hobbit stands listening behind an impressively wide pine tree.

Oakenshield: Master Baggins saw his chance and he took it. He has thought of nothing, but his soft bed and his warm hearth since first he stepped out his door. We will not be seeing our hobbit again. He is long gone.


After a few seconds Bilbo taking off the ring steps forward and says: No. He isn’t.

Gandalf opines: I’ve never been so glad to see anyone in my whole life.

Thorin needles Bilbo: Why did you come back?

Bilbo: I know you doubt me. You’re right. I often think of Bag-End (his hole-in-the-ground hobbit home). I miss my books … and my armchair, and my garden. See, that’s where I belong. That’s home. That’s why I came back, ‘cause you don’t have one – a home. It was taken from you. But I will help you take it back, if I can.

The company is ‘ash-tonished’.

Many of us came to Earth for the same reason, with the same purpose: The Earthlings’ home was taken from them, and we came to help them take it back. Now we write letters: I’m coming home, I’ve done my time.

Farther into the tale the company finds itself lost in Mirkwood Forest, so Bilbo Baggins climbs a tree to have a look-see. As he breaks through the treetop canopy, the sunlight hits him and the surrounding oak leaves.

Soon afterwards while fighting spiders Bilbo drops his ring. Once he reaches the forest floor he finds it beside an oak leaf. Wood-elves then capture the company and lock them up until The Hobbit facilitates their escape by floating down river in oak barrels.

Extract from

Dair (tree-alphabet letter)

(DAH-r), oak – The oak of myth and legend is the common oak (Quercus robur L.), sometimes called the great oak, which is a translation of its Latin name (robur, the root of the word “robust”). It grows with ash and beech in the lowland forests, can reach a height of 45 m (150 feet) and live 800 years. Along with ashes, oaks were heavily logged throughout recent millennia. The remaining giant oaks in many parts of Europe are but a remnant of forests past. Common oaks are deciduous, losing their leaves before Samhain and growing new leaves in the spring so that the trees are fully clothed by Bealltaine. Common oaks are occasionally cultivated in North America, as are the similar native white oak, valley oak, and Oregon oak. Oaks are members of the Beech family (Fagaceae).

From the oldest living tree in the world today is a Great Basin bristlecone pine named Methuselah in the White Mountains in California at 4,852 years and the second oldest is a Patagonia cypress named Gran Abuelo in Chile at 3,650 years.

I live two miles west of Parfitt’s farm where there are magnificent 300+ year old sugar maples.

Here’s the famous poem by Joyce Kilmer


I think that I shall never see

A poem as lovely as a tree

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the Earth’s sweet flowing breast

A tree that looks good all day

And lifts her leafy arms to pray

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair

Upon whose bosom snow has lain

Who intimately lives in rain

Poems are made by fools like me

But only God can make a tree


Bible Quotes

Hebrews, Greeks, Romans and Anglo Saxons regarded oaks as sacred. It is said that Abraham stood under an oak tree when the angels announced the birth of his son Isaac, and that that oak tree was still alive during Constantine’s life.

Genesis 35:4 They gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.

Genesis 35:8 Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried beneath Beth-el under an oak

2 Samuel 18:9 Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away.

Amos 2:9 Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.


In Norse myth the sacred central tree, the world-tree, Yggdrasil, is an ash.

The Norse creation story tells how Odin and his brothers Vili and Ve wandered a world without people, so on a shore they stood up two man-height logs and Odin breathed life into them. Vili gave them will, intelligence and motivation. Ve carved them into human shape. They named the man made from ash ‘Ask’, and the woman worked from elm ‘Embla’ or just ‘Elm’. (My aunt Elma gave me one of my names – No, not Pinocchio.) Ask and Embla are the Father and Mother of us all.

Greek myth has many similarities to the Norse narrations, but Greek myth has oaks being the first trees. The sacred oak tree of Zeus was the centerpiece of the Hellenic oracle Dodona. ‘Drys’ signifies ‘oak’ in Greek, and Dryads were the nymphs or spirits of oak trees, but the term now refers to tree nymphs generally, or human-tree hybrids, like ents in The Lord of the Rings.

The ancient Greek Hellenes called oaks their ‘first mothers.’

Similarly, over in Arcadia (ancient part of Iraq) the people believed that before they manifested as human beings, they were oak trees.

Jupiter, the Roman Zeus, was also associated with oaks. Common sayings were: By Jupiter! or Jumping Jupiter! or Jurassic Jupiter! … Just Joaking … so knotty.

Hinduism has its own sacred trees.



Oak Medicine

The oak tree, specifically the red oak and white oak, were so important to the first people of California and Oregon that they called it “The Tree Of Life”. Those in the know still rely heavily on these majestic trees for their abundance of health benefits, and for food.

Walking up to a large oak, he explained, “Each plant has its own pace, its own way of living from year to year and producing nuts, seeds, and fruit – many of which are good food and medicine – all acorns are edible and delicious when prepared the right way.” They were planning on grinding acorns into nutrient-dense flour for bread. We were told in school that this bountiful, everyday nut was inedible, even poisonous.

The bark of the oak tree has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal qualities. For indigestion and bowel problems, the fresh bark is charred and made into a “charcoal soup” that alleviates the symptoms. A decoction of the bark is used to treat throat infections, kidney infections, and kidney stones.

Having styptic properties (stops bleeding), oak leaves and bark are made into infusions to treat burns and cuts.


The Fir Bolg meaning ‘men of bags’ were an ancient people of Ireland. The alternative historian Michael Tsarion suggests the country Bulgaria is named after the Fir Bolg and the Irish goddess Ari.

The Hobbit author Tolkien might have derived the name ‘Bofur’ by taking the Bo from Bolg and adapting Fir to fur.

Isn’t it interesting that there is a word that means both men and trees.

The Ents (walking talking tree beings) appear in The Lord of the Rings as ancient shepherds of the forest and allies of the free peoples of Middle-earth during the War of the Ring. Their leader, Treebeard, claims to be the oldest creature in Middle-earth.



A full grown oak tree can weigh more than 2 tons = 4,000 pounds, say 1,800 kilograms = 1,800,000 grams.

An acorn weighs about 0.0066 pounds or 3 grams.

Doing the math, an acorn can grow to more than 1,800,000 / 3 = 600,000 times its original size.

Proverb: Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.


Song of Life (by Charles Mackay)

A traveller on a dusty road

Strewed acorns on the lea;

And one took root and sprouted up,

And grew into a tree.

Love sought its shade at evening-time,

To breathe its early vows;

And Age was pleased, in heights of noon,

To bask beneath its boughs.

The dormouse loved its dangling twigs,

The birds sweet music bore— It stood a glory in its place,

A blessing evermore.


The Charles’s Oak Constellation


The Lost Constellation Meant to Honor a King’s Escape

by Jessica Leigh Hester July 9, 2018

The oak is visible on the right of this illustration of Argo Navis from Uranographia, by Johannes Hevelius, 1690.

In 1651, after the Battle of Worcester, Charles II—before being crowned king —climbed a tree. Charles later claimed to have ensconced himself in the branches of an oak in Boscobel Wood while his enemies passed below. Legend has it that “he had to stay there, dead quiet, until they buggered off.”

The hiding spot, dubbed the Royal Oak, was commemorated on pottery and later with a holiday. It was also—for a little while—mapped onto the cosmos.

In 1676, years Edmond Halley (discovered comet) set up an observatory on the volcanic island of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic where he intended to catalog the stars of the Southern Hemisphere. Halley returned to England with a slew of observations, in which he eventually included a new constellation, Robur Carolinum, or “Charles’s Oak.” The once-arborially-besieged king had become a patron, and had made Halley’s journey possible.

It wasn’t uncommon for astronomers and cartographers to transplant earthly concerns—political allegiances, debts, cultural values—into their maps of the heavens. In national mythology, the oak tree had become a protective symbol for the monarchy. “This is a way for Halley to curry favor with Charles II,” Halley said as much himself on presenting his findings, with a note: In memory of the hiding place that saved Charles II … deservedly translated to the heavens forever.


As we head into the Golden Age here’s a prediction:

The future is bright

The gypsy told me so last night

Said she saw our children playing in the sunshine  

From the song Candida by Tony Orlando and Dawn (Orlando > tourist attractions; Dawn > Aton)


The lyrics below presume that the singer is not originally from Earth. The word ‘prison’ refers to the prison planet Earth where we play the 13th octave level compassion game. The prefix ‘omni’ means all, so ‘Omni’ is found as a name for The Goddess (Mother God). The song is sung to The Goddess asking that if She still wants the singer to win at the game, that is ascend to the 5 th dimension and come home, that She tie a golden ribbon round the Charles’s Oak constellation Robur Carolinum, which I dub

The Old Oak Tree

I’m coming home, I’ve done my time

Now I’ve got to know what is and isn’t mine

If You received my letter telling You I’d soon be free

Then You’ll know just what to do if You still want me

If You still want me

Woah, tie a golden ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

It’s been thirty thousand years, do You still want me? (Still want me)

If I don’t see a ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

I’ll stay on to dust, forget about us, no fifth dimension for me

If I don’t see a golden ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

Earth driver please look for me

‘Cause I couldn’t bear to see what I might see

I’m really still in prison and my Goddess holds the key

A simple golden ribbon ‘s what I need to set me free

I wrote and told Her, “Please”

Woah, tie a golden ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

It’s been three hundred thousand years, do You still want me? (Still love me)

If I don’t see a ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

I’ll stray on to dusk, forget about us, play the game Omni

If I don’t see a golden ribbon ’round the Old Oak Tree

(Musical interlude, tempo slows)

Now the whole dear Earth is cheerin’

And I can’t believe I see

A hundred golden ribbons

‘Round the Old Oak Tree (’round the Old Oak Tree)

I’m comin’ home, um-hm (5D for me)

Tie a ribbon ‘round the Old Oak Tree

Tie a ribbon ‘round the Old Oak Tree

Tie a ribbon ‘round the Gold Oak Tree

Tie a ribbon ‘round the Old Oak Tree
