"The Ring" as written by William Topley, Luke Westergaard Brighty, Kevin Terence Hime Knowles and Mike Westergaard....
You’ve seen my love
You’ve seen my child
You’ve seen my fifty dollar make believe
You’ve seen my car
You’ve seen my place
You can see that I’ve been truly blessed

Well, you’ve seen me tame
And you’ve seen me wild
And you’ve seen me here
As I wait for trial

And you’ve seen my car
And you’ve seen my place
And you’ve seen the face for whom
I sing the blues tonight

One day they’ll comfort you now baby
There ain’t an awful lot that you can do now darling
The next day they’ll come for me and you baby
I told you so. I told you so

Still the ring will shine through the dead of night
I said I rub my eyes ‘cause I can’t sleep tonight
And the cold outside is going to warm my vein
And the way I feel I can’t take more pain

Well, you’ve seen my love
And you’ve seen my child
And you’ve seen my hundred dollar make believe
And you’ve seen my car
And you’ve seen my place
You’ve seen the face for whom I made my blue disgrace

They said the rubies shone
From her bleeding nose
I said the crowd was cold and couldn’t care much more
How can a love so bad turn to so much gain
And I won’t feel free until I taste morphine

There will be a way I’ll sign
There will be a way I’ll crawl
Across Bluebeard’s fire ‘cause I can’t take much more baby
And the cold outside should be my best friend
Makes me think of you and say let’s make pretend

You know the ring will shine through the dead of night
We all want true love and not deceit and lies
And they can call my name over hill and vale
They can take me down and stick me in the jail baby
But still the ring will whirl through the pouring rain
And they can’t kill love with a cold blade
And the way to go is the way I run
And it’s two feet first I hear the starting gun

You want to call my name in the black night
But it won’t be long before we fuss and fight
And I’ve been there once and I’ve been there twice
And I ain’t been no place three times in my sweet short life
