Plain Gold Ring
Earl S. Burroughs
Recording sessions
1957: New York Beltone Studios
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
It was where everyone could see
He belonged to someone but not me
On his hand was a plain gold band

Plain gold ring had a story to tell
It was one that I knew too well
In my heart it will never be spring
Long as he wears a plain gold ring

Oh oh when nightime comes a calling on me
I know why I will never be free
I can't stop these teardrops of mine
I'm gonna love him till the end of time

Plain gold ring has but one thing to say
I'll remember till my dying day
In my heart it will never be spring
Long as he wears a plain gold ring

Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
