Kenny Rogers & The First Edition — 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 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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/kenny-rogers-the-first-edition-ruby-dont-take-your-love-to-town-lyrics.html ]
It's hard to love a man, whose legs are bent and paralyzed
That my wants and needs of a woman of your age
Ruby, I realized
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, some 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
