Baby Ruth

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album The Jealous Kind (1980).

Well it's sure good to see you, but my how you've changed
Since the last time I saw you, girl, you been rearranged
I always said your people was just like my kin
When I was down and out, they would always take me in

Oh, I love you, my baby Ruth
Never lie to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, always raise a smile

When I was livin' on the highway, you didn't turn me out
I've lived in your closet and you fed me by mouth
My boots were my pillow wrapped under my head
I kept all my stuff stashed under your bed

Oh, I love you, my baby Ruth
Never lie to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, you always raise a smile

Oh, I love you, my Baby Ruth
Never like to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, you always raise a smile
