George Jones and Tammy Wynette performs "Golden Rings"live video.

"Golden Ring" is a song made famous by country music singers George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Originally released in 1976, the song was the title track to their duet album released that same year. It was a Number One hit on the Billboard country charts.

The song was conceived by songwriter Bobby Braddock, who had seen a television drama about the life of a handgun. The story showed the gun changing hands several times, with a hunter, police officer, criminal and a father of a 2-year-old child all owning the gun at one point, with the consequences played out in each segment.Braddock applied the same concept to a song about the life of a wedding ring.

George Jones and Tammy Wynette - Golden Rings lyrics

 

In a pawn shop in Chicago

On a sunny summer day

A couple gazes at the

Wedding rings there on display

She smiles and nods her head

As he says Honey that's for you

It's not much but it's the best that I can do

 

Golden ring with one tiny little stone

Waiting there for someone to take it home

By itself it's just a cold metallic thing

Only love can make a golden wedding ring

 

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

 

Golden ring with one tiny little stone

Shining ring now at last it's found a home

By itself it's just a cold metallic thing

Only love can make a golden wedding ring

 

In a small two room apartment

As they fight their final round

He says tou 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

 

Golden ring with one tiny little stone

Cast aside like the love that's dead and gone

By itself it's just a cold metallic thing

Only love can make a golden wedding ring

 

In a pawn shop in Chicago

On a sunny summer day

A couple gazes at the

Wedding rings there on display
