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 paralysed
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 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 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
