Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town
written by Mel Tillis
tabbed 5/22/05
Credit where it's due...to Larry's tab of Kenny Roger's version.   Some of the chords are
slightly different, and some of the lyrics are different, but much is still the same.


INTRO:   C

C                                          F                     G
You've painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair
C                              F            Gsus4
Hey Ruby are you contemplating goin' out somewhere
Dm                               G
Shadows on the wall tells me the sun is goin' down
     C  F  Dm                          C
Oh Ruby........don't take your love to town


    Dm                             C
It wasn't me who started that old crazy Asian war
    Dm                          F         Gsus4
And I was free to go and do my patriotic chore
    Dm                       G
And Ruby I know I'm not the man I used to be
    C   F  Dm                          C
Oh Ruby........I still need some company


C                                      F               G
It's hard to love a man who's legs are bent and paralyzed
        C                                    F       Gsus4
And the wants and needs of a woman your age, Ruby I realize
       Dm                                G
And it won't be long I've heard 'em say until I'm not around
    C   F  Dm                           C
Oh Ruby.......don't take your love to town


C                                   F              G
She's leavin' now, I just heard the slammin' of the door
    C                               F            G
The way I know I've heard it slam a hundred times before
       Dm                             G
And if I could move I'd get my gun and lay her in the ground
    C   F  Dm                           C
Oh Ruby........don't take your love to town


    C   F  Dm                           C        Dm
Oh Ruby........don't take your love to town,
                        C           Dm                C
For God's sakes turn around, don't take your love to town
