Bobby Bare — Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town lyrics

You have painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere
The shadows on the wall tell me the sun is goin' down
Oh Ruby don't take your love to town
It's hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralized
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
For it wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chores
Oh I know Ruby that I'm not the man I used to be but Ruby I still need your company
And she's leaving now cause I've just heard the slamming of the door
The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before
If I could move I get my gun and put her in the ground
Oh Ruby don't take your love to town don't take your love to town
