Ruby don't take your love to town

** "Songbook" Songbook.RubyDontTakeYourLoveToTown -> Songbook.FullName ontrail



Performed: Kenny Rogers and the First Edition[3]

C F G7
You've painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
C F G7
Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere
F G7
The shadows on the wall tell me the sun is going down
C F G7 C
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town
 
C F G7
It's hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralysed
C F G7
And the wants and the needs of a woman your age, Ruby I realise
F G7
But it won't be long I've heard them say, until I'm not around
C F G7 C
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town
 
Dm F C
It wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war
Dm F G7
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chores
F G7
And I know Ruby, that I'm not the man that I used to be
C F G7 C
But Ruby, I still need some company
 
C F G7
She's leaving now cause I just heard the slamming of the door
C F G7
The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before
F G7
And if I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground
C F G7 C
Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town
 
F C
Ruby for God sake's turn around
F G7 C
Don't take your love to town
