Kenny Rogers Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town Lyrics

Last updated: 04/06/2012 02:51:25 AM

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
It's hard to love a man
Whose legs are bent and paralyzed
and I won't serve the needs of a woman of your age
Ruby, I realized
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

There needs to be a correction. After "bent and paralyzed" where you have written "that my wants and needs", should be "and the wants and needs". There is also a line missing after "I realize". It should be "But it won't be long I've heard them say until I'm not around"
