She Wears My Ring

Rating:
3.7 / 5

Words & Music: Boudleaux Bryant Felice Bryant

She wears my ring to show the world that she belongs to me
She wears my ring to show the world she's mine eternally
With loving care I placed it on her finger
To show my love for all the world to see

This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that's as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

This tiny ring is a token of tender emotion
An endless pool of love that's as deep as the ocean
She swears to wear it with eternal devotion
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring
That's why I sing, because she wears my ring

The Bryants wrote some beautiful songs and its a great pity that Elvis didn't record more of them. I have always liked this song and Elvis sings it extremely well. A good track from an equally good album(Good Times)

A truly beautiful ballad !....Made for Elvis's voice !...He should've performed this one live !

I don't like this song at all, it's very mediocre - the weakest song by far on the Good Times album.

Lovely tender balad. Played it on my wedding day. It was received with great appreciation!

A great country song. Sung by someone who knew a thing or two about country music. One of my favorite tracks on "Good Times."

I perfer Roy Orbison's version but its not one of the better Bryant tunes.

Not over keen on this one, but wouldn't say that I don't like it.

I love this song! Elvis does such a good job on it! A great song from a great album!

I would have to put this one in the category of lesser tracks on the "Good Times" LP. Elvis over sings it in parts and for one of the rare times does not seem to be in sync with the tenderness of the lyrics. I love over the top Elvis ballads, but this one called for more of a "Sweet Angeline" touch with softness touched with power. I don't totally dislike it, but I so much more enjoy "Lovin' Arms", "My Boy", "Talk About The Good Time", "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues", "I've Got A Thing About You Baby" and evey "I Got A Feelin' In My Body". I put this one with "If That Isn't Love", "Spanish Eyes" and "Take Good Care Of Her"...good, but not Elvis' best work. Overall the LP is not one of Elvis' best.

Not one of my favorites. Same goes for "Spanish Eyes" and a few others. A big part of the problem of this recording is how it was recorded, and overdubbed, It sounds too hollow, and empty. And Elvis preformance, could have been better. But regardless, its Elvis and I love him.

"If That Isn't Love", "Spanish Eyes" and "Take Good Care Of Her"... are decent, but songs like, Lovin' Arms", "My Boy", "Talk About The Good Time", "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues", "I've Got A Thing About You Baby" and "I Got A Feelin' In My Body", are so much, much better !

A song nicely sung by Elvis, a good ballad from a good album. Nothing at all wrong with this track.

A lesser song on an album i like very much. Still give it 31/2 stars.

Not a great song, not a great arrangment. Three stars.
Gorse wrote on April 14, 2014
Beautifully sung with that fabulous vibrato. I do agree however that something is lacking and is the same feeling I have with modern divas who sing the socks off songs but leave you slightly cold. Still this is worth 4 stars - just.

Boring; don't care for it.

In my opinion, this is a beautiful and underrated ballad and Elvis' rendition of it was splendid. This is such a great song to play at a wedding. I like every song from the "Good Times" album immensely.
