"WHEN SHE GOT THAT RING" by David Guilbault

She coulda had most anything.
But she had to have that wedding ring.
Ev’rything she said and done,
Said her life had just begun
When she got that ring.

She wore that band like a golden crown.
She took that man and she wore him down.
Like a jester in her court,
She made him dance until his feet were sore,
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
His time moved slow-o-ow.

He thought about it for a time.
He fought against it as the years went by.
But down deep inside he knew
The trials that she had put him through
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
It was time to go-o-o.
And through his heartache,
He saw the light.
Felt his right.
Took his flight.

She got the house and the picket fence.
She got the kids and the fancy friends.
He got a hurt he can’t abide.
He lost himself and slipped inside,
When she got that ring.

And oh-oh-oh.
Still hurts him so-o-o.
