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 as my gown of white I stood by his side

And promised that I’d love him 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 me 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 me 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

I had a ring on my finger and time on my hands

The woman in me 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
