Lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
In a pawn shop in ChicagoOn a sunny summer dayA couple gazes at the wedding rings there on display
She smiles and nods her headAs he says, honey that’s for youIt’s not much, but it’s the best that I can do
Golden rings (golden ring)With one tiny little stoneWaiting there (waiting there)For someone to take you home
By itself (by itself)It’s just a cold metallic thingOnly love can make a golden wedding ring
In a little wedding chapelLater on that afternoonAn old upright piano plays that old familiar tune
Tears roll down her cheeksAnd happy thoughts run through her headAs he whispers low, “With this ring, I thee wed”
Golden rings (golden ring)With one tiny little stoneShining ring (shining ring)Now at last it’s found a home
By itself (by itself)It’s just a cold metallic thingOnly love can make a golden wedding ring
In a small two-room apartmentAs they fought their final roundHe says, “You won’t admit itBut I know you’re leavin’ town”
She says, “One thing’s for certainI don’t love you anymore”And throws down the ringAs she walks out the door
Golden rings (golden ring)With one tiny little stoneCast aside (cast aside)Like the love that’s dead and gone
By itself (by itself)It’s just a cold metallic thingOnly love can make a golden wedding ring
In a pawn shop in ChicagoOn a sunny summer dayA couple gazes at the wedding rings there on displayGolden ring
