"Golden Ring" was a duet recorded by George Jones and Tammy Wynette. It was released on their album of the same name in 1976. It hit #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

The song tells the tale of an engaged couple at a pawn shop looking for a wedding ring for the woman. They choose an affordable ring and the man says, "Honey that's for you. It's not much, but it's the best that I can do."  The song goes on further to say that it's not a cold piece of metal that makes the ring, but the eternal love it represents. Unfortunately, the song doesn't end happy. Their love is torn apart and the woman leaves, casting the ring aside. The ending chorus eludes to a new couple perusing for a ring at the same pawn shop - that same ring. It's one vicious cycle.

The extremely talented daughter of both George and Tammy, Georgette, performs this duet with Vince Gill. Their rendition is very well done and the audience obviously loves it. Talent surely runs in the Jones/Wynette family. Vince, as always, amazes with every performance he does.

Check it out.

Lyrics

In a pawn shop in Chicago
On a sunny summer day
A couple gazes at the wedding rings
There on display

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"

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

In a little wedding chapel later on that afternoon
An old upright 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 (golden ring) with one tiny little stone
Shining ring (shining ring) now at last it's found a home
By itself (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 fought their final round
He says, "You won't admit it,
But I know you're leavin' town"

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

Golden ring (golden ring) with one tiny little stone
Cast aside (cast aside) like the love that's dead and gone
By itself (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,
Golden ring
