Yellow ledbetter guitar chords

The song title “Yellow Ledbetter” is derived from the actual name of an old friend of Vedder’s from Chicago, named Tim Ledbetter. Although many fans have made their own interpretations of the song’s meaning, a common theory has been that the song is about someone receiving a letter saying that his or her brother had died overseas in war, as cited from the lyrics in the Live at the Garden version “I don’t know whether my brother will be coming home in a box or a bag. ” On the official bootleg release of 5/3/03 – State College, Pennsylvania, Vedder sings “I’d like to wish this war away, and I tried, but it just, just don’t happen, don’t happen that way/And my brother. . . they sent him off to fight for the flag. I just, I don’t hope he comes home in a box or a bag”, and “And I know that he’s just following his path. As long, as long as it’s not a box or a bag. ” On the official bootleg release of 7/11/03 – Mansfield, Massachusetts, Vedder sings in the first verse “I think of him when I go to bed, and he’s coming home in a box or a bag. ”
