    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 old 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 paralysed
    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 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 some 100 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
