美國鄉村樂女皇[蕾芭.麥肯泰爾]──鄉村抒情曲──[Rings on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands/她指上的戒指, 手上的時間]

 

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

Songwriters: DON GOODMAN, MARY KENNEDY, PAM ROSE

這是她對傾慕欣賞歌手的致意

1995年11月 蕾芭推出第二主打[Rings on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands/她指上的戒指, 手上的時間]

此曲乃翻唱1981年鄉村男歌手Lee Geenwood的歌曲──當時拿到Billboard鄉村榜#5

麥肯泰爾是首鄉村流行抒情曲, 委婉的詮釋出女主角孤寂的心境
