Reba McEntire - Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands Lyrics

I stood before God, my family and friends
And vowed that I'd never love anyone else again
Only him

As pure a s my gown of white I stood by his side
And promised that I'd love you till the day I died
Lord, please forgive me even though I lied
'Cause you're the only one who knows just how hard I tried

I had a ring on my finger and time on my hands
The woman in my needed the warmth of a man
The gold turned cold in my wedding band
It's just a ring on your finger
When there's time on your hands

When I add up all the countless nights I cried myself to sleep
And all the broken promises you somehow failed to keep
He can't blame me

He's the one who left me too many times alone
In a three bedroom prison
I tried to make a home
My love slowly died but the fire inside still burned
And the arms of a stranger was the only place left to turn

I had a ring on my finger and time on my hands
The woman in my needed the warmth of a man
The gold turned cold in my wedding band
It's just a ring on your finger
When there's time on your hands
