Kenny Rogers

                                                             A7   Em
You've painted up your lips an rolled and curled your tinted hair. 
D                          G             A7
Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere? 
    Em                              A7                Em
The Shadow on the wall tells me the sun is going down...  
   D G
Oh Ruby 
      Em                D
Don't take your love to town 
[ Tab from: ]
   Em                              D
It wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war 
    Em                          G         A7
But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore 
    Em                              A7               Em
And yes, it's true that I'm not the man I used to be... 
   D G           Em             D
Oh Ruby, I still need some company. 

     Em                                D
It s hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralyzed 
        Em                                       G         A7
And the wants and the needs of a woman your age, Ruby I realize, 
       Em                                  A7                 Em
But it won't be long I've heard them say until I'm not around 
   D G
Oh Ruby 
      Em                D
Don't take your love to town 

      Em                              D                     (no music)
She's leaving' now 'cause I heard the slamming' of the door 
    Em                                G               A7
The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before 
    Em                                 A7                    Em
And if I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground 
   D G
Oh Ruby 
      Em                D
Don't take your love to town 

   D G
Oh Ruby 
God sakes, turn around
