Ruby (Rogers Kenny)

You've painted up your lips an 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 old 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... Oh Ruby I still need some company. Its hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralysed And THE WANTS AND the needs of a woman your age, Ruby I realize, But it won't be long i've heard them say until I'M not around Oh Ruby Don't take your love to town She's leavin' now 'cause I heard the slammin' of the door The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred 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 God sakeS turn around
