You've 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 going down
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 it's true I'm not the man, ruby, that I used to be
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 leavin' 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
Ruby, don't take your love to town
For God's sake turn around
Don't take your love to town
