Flying Silver Eagle  Jamey Johnson

Standin' [D]at that [G]pawn shop [D]counter, trying [D]on the [A]wedding [D]rings
She [D]said she [G]needed [D]silver, 'cause [D]gold just turns her [A7]green
I [D]counted [G]out the [D]twenties, and I [D]laid the [D7]money [G]down
And [G]we went straight to the [D]David[A7]son c[D]ourthouse
After [D]three long [G]years to[D]gether, she [D]found a [A]bank[D]er man
Said she was [D]thinkin' a[G]bout her [D]future, and gave me [D]back that silver [A7]band
I [D]had it [G]melted [D]down, so I could [D]wear it [D7]on a c[G]hain
Now it's a [G]flyin' silver [D]eagle that [A7]used to be a [D]ring
I'd rather [G]have this silver eagle than [D]all that rich man's gold
[Bm]It's my one [Em]reminder of a [G]woman turnin' [A7]cold
Her [D]love lies [G]in his [D]money, and mine's [D]in a [D7]pair of [G]wings
On a [G]flyin' silver e[D]agle that [A7]used to be a [D]ring
I couldn't [D]put the [G]past b[D]ehind me, so I [D]put it [A]in a [D]song
That's [D]how I [G]tell the [D]story, how that [D]woman done me [A7]wrong
Now I [D]tour ac[G]ross the [D]country, ridin' [D]high [D7]on the [G]wings
Of a [G]flyin' silver [D]eagle that [A7]used to be a [D]ring
I met a [D]homeless [G]man on [D]Broadway, he was [D]holdin' [A]out his [D]hand
He [D]asked me [G]for a [D]dollar, said he was [D]once a banker [A7]man
'Til that [D]lady [G]took his [D]money, I said [D]man I [D7]feel your [G]pain
Ya might could [G]use this silver [D]eagle, you know it [A7]used to be a ring[D]
