Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album When You're Hot, You're Hot (1971).

You have painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere
Well the shadows on the wall tell me that the sun is going down
Well I say Ruby Ruby Ruby don't take your love to town

Well it is hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralized
And the wants and the needs of a woman your age Ruby I realize
But it won't be long I hear them say until I ain't around
Well I say Ruby Ruby Ruby don't take your love to town

Well it wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chores
And I know Ruby that I'm not the man I supposed to be
I say Ruby Ruby Ruby I still need your company

She is 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 get my gun and I put her under the ground
Well I say Ruby Ruby Ruby I say Ruby Ruby Ruby
I say I say Ruby Ruby Ruby don't take your love to town
