[Tammy Wynette] In a pawn shop in Chicago On a sunny summer day A couple gazes at the wedding rings There on display [George Jones] 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: Tammy Wynette & George Jones] 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 [Tammy Wynette] In a little wedding chapel later on that afternoon An old upright piano plays that old familiar tune [George Jones] Tears roll down her cheeks And happy thoughts run through her head As he whispers low, "With this ring, I thee wed." [Chorus] [Tammy Wynette] 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." [George Jones] 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] [Tammy Wynette & George Jones] In a pawn shop in Chicago On a sunny summer day A couple gazes at the wedding rings There on display, Golden ring.
