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."
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
In a pawn shop in Chicago On a sunny summer day A couple gazes at the wedding rings There on display, Golden ring.
