Who Sang Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town? Mel Tillis

Release information
Release Date: 1967-1
Genre: Folk, World, & Country
Style: Country

You've painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
Ruby are you contemplating goin' 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 old crazy Asian war
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chores
And yes it's true I'm not the man that I used to be
Oh but Ruby I still need some company
It's 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'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 Ruby for God sake's turn around
