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 sakes turn around

 

-Mel Tillis
