New Music Monday – My Version of “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town”

Kenny Rogers

Hell yeah…it’s New Music Monday! This week, it’s my version of Kenny Rogers’ “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town”:

Ruby, don’t take your love to town

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 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 paralyzed
And the wants and the needs of a woman of your age
Ruby, I realise
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 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’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
