Lyrics

JUST AN OLD TARNISHED RING

They were old folks now or as some might say
In the twilight of their years
But their love was still strong
As it was way back then when they were kids
Without a care in the world

CHORUS:
And though his ring was now tarnished and old
In his heart it still shined like pure gold
And the love that he felt still made her heart melt
Just like a young girl from the happy days of old

But when he walked through the doorway one day
His eyes glistened and his head turned away
The old ring wasn't there he had looked everywhere
But he had lost it it was almost more than he could bear

CHORUS:
And though his ring was now tarnished and old
In his heart it still shined like pure gold
And the love that he felt still made her heart melt
Just like a young girl from the happy days of old

Five years have gone by since he's gone
She thinks of him everyday when she's alone
But something happened today when her grandson came to stay
He said Gram, you'll never guess what I just found

Sure enough it was that old tarnished ring
He'd found it in the yard by the swing
Though it was muddy and cold to her it looked like pure gold
His love sure was smilin from above
On her bed stand at night sits that old tarnished ring
Where it'll stay cause he still makes her heart sing
