Ring, ring, telephone ring, somebody said Baby, what ya doin', I've been wonderin' where you been Now and then I think about you and me No use fightin' 'bout things we can't recall It don't matter now at all Just come on home, baby, we'll laugh and sing We'll make love, let the telephone ring Ring, ring, doorbell ring, baby, come on in Got James Taylor on the stereo I'm glad you come around, I've been feelin' down Just talkin' to Tony and Mario You know they make good conversation Still it ain't no consolation Cause I got love, baby I'll give you some and if somebody comes We'll let the doorbell ring Said, ring, ring, golden ring around the sun Around your pretty finger Ring, ring voices ring with a happy tune Anybody can be a singer The sun come up across the city I swear you never looked so doggone pretty Hand in hand we'll stand upon the sand with the preacher man Let the weddin' bells ring Hand in hand we'll stand upon the sand with the preacher man Let the weddin' bells ring Hand in hand we'll stand upon the sand with the preacher man Let the weddin' bells ring

Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 14th 1974, two covered versions of "Rings" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; Lobo's version entered at #79 and peaked at #43, while Reuben Howell's version entered at #86 and that was also its peaked position... Lobo's version had 'Allman Brothers' on the stereo and Howell's had 'Jim Croce'... In 1971 on Cymarron's original version it was 'James Taylor' and also in 1971 Tompall & the Glaser Brothers released their version, they had 'Merle Haggard'.
Michael from Mcfarland, WiLeo Kottke likes to make fun of this song, but it didn't stop him from recording a cover!
Barry from Sauquoit, NyIn Cymarron's version when they answer the door bell they're listening to James Tayor, but Lobo is listening to the Allman Brothers while Dr. Hook is just plain listening to sweet music...
Phillip from Troy, TnI had the privilege of listening to Cymarron practice at the home of the organ player of that group when they were first getting started. The player of the organ was Terry Hailey, who is currently (Feb 2010) the Mayor of Union City, Tennessee. I am not sure how long he remained with the group, but I remember that he had local notoriety because of the song "Rings".
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
