Standin' at that pawn shop counter,
Tryin' on the wedding rings.
She said needed silver,
'Cause gold just turns her green.
I counted out the twenties an' I laid the money down,
An' we went straight to the Davidson Court House.

After three long years together,
She found a banker man.
Said she was thinkin' about her future,
An' gave me back that silver band.
I had it melted down so I could wear it on a chain.
Now it's a flyin' silver eagle that used to be a ring.

I'd rather have this silver eagle,
Than all that rich man's gold.
It's my one reminder of a woman turnin' cold.
Her love lies in his money,
An' mine's in a pair of wings,
On a flyin' silver eagle that used to be a ring.

I couldn't put the past behind me,
So I put it in a song.
That's how I tell the story,
How that woman done me wrong.
Now I tour across the country ridin' high on the wings,
Of a flyin' silver eagle that used to be a ring

Yeah, I'd rather have this silver eagle,
Than all that rich man's gold.
It's my one reminder of a woman turnin' cold.
Her love lies in his money:
Mine's in a pair of wings,
On a flyin' silver eagle that used to be a ring.

Instrumental break.

I met a homeless man on Broadway,
He was holdin' out his hand.
He asked me for a dollar,
Said he was once a banker man.
Till that lady took his money.
I said: "Man, I feel your pain.
"You might get use this silver eagle.
"You know it used to be a ring."

Instrumental fade.
