Background of the Tradition Most Music Historians trace the custom to a 19th Century Civil War Song. Reportedly the custom comes from a Civil War story about a prisoner's homecoming returning from Andersonville Prison. In 1973 Tony Orlando and Dawn cut their number one song of that year and their all-time classic: “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree.” Folklore has it that the inspiration for the 1973 song came from a true incident that occurred on a bus bound for Miami, Florida. It seems that one of the passengers had just been released from prison and he was bound for home. He had written his wife and let her know he still loved her and wanted to be with her. He asked her to tie a yellow ribbon around the lone oak tree in the Town Square of White Oak, Georgia, if she still had feelings for him and wanted him to be with her. Everyone in the bus asked the driver to slow down as they approached, there it was! The driver pulled over and phoned the wire services to share the story. It quickly spread throughout the country. Songwriters Irwin Levine and L. Russell Brown wrote the ballad from the news story.

Florida and Sun Belt Americans have a craze for the sun. The most desirable place in the American sun is the coastline of southern California, but Florida is perhaps the most popular state in the Sun Belt. In fact, it calls itself “The Sunshine State." It has a subtropical climate and is ideal for a winter vacation. From November to March northerners and easterners come to lie on the warm, sandy beaches of Miami, Palm Beach and the other resorts along the coast. And that is why the boys and girls in our story are so eager to leave the “gray", “cold" city of New York to vacation in Florida.

Parole It is a legal term, which means release of a convicted criminal from prison before he has served his full sentence. A parole is usually granted to a prisoner as a reward for good conduct. A paroled convict is a relatively free man, but he is under the supervision of a parole officer or some other person until the end of the term of his sentence. The paroled convict reports regularly to the parole officers. He can be sent back to prison if his conduct is not satisfactory.
