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.


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
