Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town - lyrics

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 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
It's hard to love a man whose
Legs are bent and paralyzed
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 leaving now 'cause I just
Heard the slamming 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, for God's sake, turn around
