G0 F1 0You've painted up your lips an rolled and curled your tinted hair.
C2 F3 G4 1Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere?
Dm5 C6 F7 2The shadow on the wall tells me the sun is going down -
C8 F9 - Stop - 3Oh Ru-------by-----
C10 4Don't Take your love to town
Dm11 C12 7It wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war
Dm13 F14 G15 8But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore
Dm16 C17 F18 9And yes, it's true that I'm not the man I used to be...
C19 F20 - Stop - 10Oh Ru-------by-----
C21 11I still need some company.
C22 G23 C24 14Its hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralyzed
C25 F26 G27 15And the wants and the needs of a woman your age, Ruby I realize
Dm28 C29 F30 16But it won't be long I’ve heard them say until I’m not around
C31 F32 - Stop - 17Oh Ru-------by-----
C33 18Don't Take your love to town
21- no chords -
22She's leavin' now 'cause I heard the slammin' of the door
24The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before
Dm34 C35 F36 25And if I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground
C37 F38 - Stop - 26Oh Ru-------by-----
C39 27Don't Take your love to town
C40 F41 - Stop - 28Oh Ru-------by-----
