Flying silver eagle Lyrics by Jamey Johnson

 

Flying silver eagle by Jamey Johnson


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.
