They say she came all the way from Dallas
But I see more than Texas in the hard times on her face
And every song she sings brings back a hundred thousand memories
Of another girl, another time, another place

She does not have the body of the woman I once loved
But she's still the girl that I once idolized
And I swear I see a little bit of every girl I've known
In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes, in the loneliness of Ruby's eyes

Kinfolks say she's had a lot of lovers
But love don't leave a woman filled with shame
And I've heard tell she had a child in Dallas
And all the men in Houston know her name

She does not have the body of the woman I once loved
But she's still the girl that I once idolized
And I swear I see a little bit of every girl I've known
In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes, in the loneliness of Ruby's eyes

In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes
In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes
In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes
In the loneliness of Ruby's eyes
