[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.
