Loneliness in Ruby's Eyes

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album Once Upon A Rhyme (1974).

By david allan coe

They say she came all the way from dallas
But I see more than Texas in the hard times on her face
And every song she sings brings back a hundred thousand memories
Of another girl, another time, another place

She does not have the body of the woman I once loved
But she's still the girl that I once idolized
And, I swear, I see a little bit of every girl I've known
In the loneliness of ruby's eyes, in the loneliness of ruby's eyes

Kinfolks say she's had a lot of lovers
And love don't leave a woman filled with shame
And I've heard tell she had a child in dallas
And all the men in houston know her name
