Third Finger Left Hand
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


At last my dreams come true
Today he said "I do"
Friends said it couldn't be done
But all his love I know I've won
'Cause 3rd finger, left hand
That's where he placed the wedding band

He walked right up to me
& pledged his love for me
I longed to hear him say
The sweet words he spoke that day
Made me feel so good inside
The tears came to my eyes
I love him above the rest
'Cause in my book he's the best

'Cause he did something that no one else did
Friends said it couldn't be done
But all his love I know I've won
'Cause 3rd finger, left hand
That's where he placed the wedding band

His words were precious few
But all along my heart knew
That no other boys in line
Could ever change my mind
Other boys I sent away
I locked my heart till our wedding day
I love him above the rest
'Cause in my book he's the best

'Cause he did something that no one else did
Friends said it couldn't be done
But all his love I know I've won
'Cause 3rd finger, left hand
That's where he placed the wedding band

3rd finger, left hand
That's where he placed the wedding band

One of the best songs of the era.

Bob Robson

Just simply classic Motown. A great song and great production and performance. It doesn't get much better than this.

Tricia Madden

Simply beautiful. Makes me feel so happy they don’t make songs like this now

sunryse111

No, Tricia, they do not. That's why channels like this are so popular!

Warren Bloom

One of the greatest songs of the sixties from 1 of the greatest voices and groups of the 1960s the fabulous Martha Reeves and the Vandalias.

1:37 absolutely send chills down my body...THEM LYRICS!!!!

the professor

Motown was doin' it back then! To create music like this, a pop-like standard and add elements of R&B to it, with those strings and the drum doing just enough, man, that's greatness right there!

hilary taylor

I cant agree with you more! You said it all. Greatness@
