MY WEDDING RING (Jack Rhodes) Jean Shepard - 1953 Johnny Horton - 1953 As recorded by JEAN SHEPARD: You ask me how long I've been drinkin' And livin' this honky tonk life Well listen, girls, I'll tell you my story I'm a mother that was once a happy wife I'm a girl just like so many others Neither good nor bad, maybe a girl like you And just think, but for the grace of God in Heaven It could have been your heart that was broke in two I'm a girl that's left without a future And a baby boy that has his daddy's name And the baby looks just like his daddy But another woman wears my wedding ring (Instrumental Break) I'm a girl that's left without a future And a baby boy that has his daddy's name And the baby looks just like his daddy But another woman wears my wedding ring ******************** As recorded by JOHNNY HORTON under the title "ANOTHER WOMAN WEARS MY WEDDING RING": I was drinkin' last night in a tavern When in walked a pretty little girl She took the drinks that I offered And here's the story that she told the world You ask me how long I've been drinkin' And livin' this honky tonk life Well, listen and I'll tell you my story I'm a mother that was once a happy wife I'm a girl that's left without a future With a baby boy who has his daddy's name And the baby looks just like his daddy But another woman wears my wedding ring She said there's too many songs 'bout us women How we always seem to prove untrue Back of ev'ry drink I've ever taken Was because he left me for somebody new I'm a girl that's left without a future With a baby boy who has his daddy's name And the baby, he looks just like his daddy But another woman wears my wedding ring (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2015)
