Em A7 Em The Shadow on the wall tells me the sun is going down - D G G/F# Em (Stop) Oh Ruby----- D Don't Take your love to town Its 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 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 G/F# Em (Stop) Oh Ruby----- D I still need some company. She's leavin' now 'cause I heard the slammin' iof 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----- For god's sake turn around!
