Album: Golden Ring (1976)
Play Video
  • In a pawn shop in Chicago
    On a sunny summer day
    A couple gazes at the wedding rings
    There on display

    She smiles n' nods her head
    As he says, "Honey that's for you,
    It's not much, but it's the best
    That I can do."

    [Chorus]
    Golden rings (golden ring) with one tiny little stone
    Waiting there (waiting there) for someone to take you home
    By itself (by itself) it's just a cold metallic thing
    Only love can make a golden wedding ring

    In a little wedding chapel later on that afternoon
    An old upright piano plays that old familiar tune

    Tears roll down her cheeks
    And happy thoughts run through her head
    As he whispers low, "With this ring, I thee wed."

    [Chorus]

    Ooo-ooo

    In a small two room apartment
    As they fought their final round
    He says, "You won't admit it,
    But I know you're leavin' town."

    She says, "One thing's for certain,
    I don't love you any more."
    And throws down the ring
    As she walks out the door

    [Chorus]

    In a pawn shop in Chicago
    On a sunny summer day
    A couple gazes at the wedding rings
    There on display,
    Golden ring. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
