Golden Ring  George Jones & Tammy Wynette

Verse 1:
In a [G]pawn shop in Chicago on a sunny sumer day
A [D7]couple gazes at the wedding [G]rings there [C]on dis[G]play
She smiles and nods her head as he says Honey that's for you.
It's not much but it's the [D7]best that I can [G]do.

Chorus:
Gold[D7]en [G]Ring With one tiny little stone
Waiting [D7]there for some[G]one to take it home
By [D7]its[G]elf it's just a cold metalic thing
Only love can make a [D7]golden wedding [G]ring.  [D7]

Verse 2:
In a little wedding chapel later on that after noon
An old up right 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: Golden Ring
With one tiny little stone
Shining ring
now at last it's found a home
By itself
it's just a cold metalic thing
Only love can make a golden wedding ring.

Verse 3: In a small two room apartment
as they fight 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 anymore.
And throws down the ring as
she walks out the door.

Chorus: Golden Ring
With one tiny little stone
Cast aside
like the love that's dead and gone.
By itself
it's just a cold metalic thing
Only love can make a golden wedding ring.

Ending : In a pawn shop in Chicago
on a sunny sumer day
A couple gazes at the wedding
rings there on display
Golden Ring.
