How To Play

INTRO
D
 
VERSE
         D       G         D               D      A       D
Standin' at that pawn shop counter, trying on the wedding rings
    D        G      D              D                   A7
She said she needed silver, 'cause gold just turns her green
  D       G       D               D        D7    G
I counted out the twenties, and I laid the money down
    G                       D    A7   D
And we went straight to the Davidson courthouse
 
      D          G       D           D       A   D
After three long years together, she found a banker man
             D         G        D                   D                A7
Said she was thinkin' about her future, and gave me back that silver band
  D      G      D                D       D7    G
I had it melted down, so I could wear it on a chain
           G             D          A7           D
Now it's a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring
 
CHORUS
           G                           D
I'd rather have this silver eagle than all that rich man's gold
Bm            F#m          G             A7
It's my one reminder of a woman turnin' cold
    D         G      D                 D    D7      G
Her love lies in his money, and mine's in a pair of wings
     G              D         A7           D
On a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring
 
INTERLUDE
D
 
VERSE
           D       G     D              D      A    D
I couldn't put the past behind me, so I put it in a song
       D     G        D               D             A7
That's how I tell the story, how that woman done me wrong
      D      G        D               D    D7     G
Now I tour across the country, ridin' high on the wings
     G             D          A7           D
Of a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring
 
CHORUS
           G                           D
I'd rather have this silver eagle than all that rich man's gold
Bm            F#m          G             A7
It's my one reminder of a woman turnin' cold
    D         G      D                 D    D7      G
Her love lies in his money, and mine's in a pair of wings
     G              D         A7           D
On a flying silver eagle that used to be a ring
 
OUTRO
        D        G      D                D       A       D
I met a homeless man on Broadway, he was holdin' out his hand
   D        G     D                   D             A7
He asked me for a dollar, said he was once a banker man
          D    G        D             D     D7        G
'Til that lady took his money, I said man I feel your pain
               G               D                  A7                 D
Ya might could use this silver eagle, you know it used to be a ring
