    Because she is an idiot in love with a jerk/loser.

    Is that why you’d root for their reunion?

    When I hear that song I always try too imagine that he was falsely accused. Other wise I have the same sentiments as @simpsonfan2

    »Now I’ve got to know what is and isn’t mine … »
    Well that’s theft, supposedly.
    And he didn’t have a government job.

    Was he in jail? I was told the song was written during the Vietnam War, and he was being discharged/coming home after 3 years.

    Just following that self destructive path of hooking up with a dangerous loser.

    Not for lack of awareness in most cases.

    Looked up the lyrics. It does indeed mention prison. Never liked the stupid song anyway……and now I need to sing my jingle buster so I can get on with the day in peace.

    It is about 3 years in the Army — 2 years when drafted and 1 year re-up! It’s not about jail.

    Maybe the “three long years” was his hitch in the Army.

    According to them, everybody in prison is innocent.

    The girl that killed my wife in a car accident was sentenced to 3 years with hard labor with tough, but fair conditions of parole. I’m happy to say that she fulfilled the conditions of her sentence and has a good life from the last I heard.
    I only mention this to show that one can be in prison for 3 years doing things less than armed robbery or worse. Also, just because one serves time in prison does not mean that the person is a risk to family or society.

    Military might be a good explanation if not for:

    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

    The original story that inspired this song was about a Union soldier that had been released from a Confederate prison. It was originally a stage coach rather than a bus. The tree was in the town square, not in front of the house. So now you know.
