You've painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
Ruby are you contemplating, going out somewhere
The shadow on the wall, tells me the sun is going down
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town

It wasn't me that started that ol' crazy Asian war
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore
And yes it's true, that I'm not the man I used to be
But Ruby, I still need some company

It's hard to love a man, whose legs are bent and paralyzed
And the wants and needs of a woman of your age
Ruby I realize
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town

She's leaving now 'cause I just heard the slamming of the door
The way I know I've heard it slam 100 times before
And if I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground, oh Ruby
Don't take your love to town, oh Ruby, for God's sake turn around

TILLIS, MEL
