Ruby Dont Take Your Love To Town  Roger Miller

V1. Intro Notes - A3-G5-D5-G5-D5  A3-G5-D5-G5-D5 Repeat Twice

You've [C]painted up your lips an rolled and [F]curled your tinted [G]hair. [Dm]
[C]Ruby are you contemplating [F]going out some[G]where? [Dm]
The [F]Shadow on the wall tells me the [C]sun is going [G]down - [Dm]
Oh [C]Ru---[F]by
Don't [Dm]Take your [F]love to [C]town
It [Dm]wasn't me that started that old [C]crazy asian war
But [Dm]I was proud to go and do my [F]patriotic [G]chore  [Dm]
And [F]yes, it's true I'm not the man [C]that I used to [G]be...[Dm]
Oh [C]Ru---[F]by
I still [Dm]need some [F]compa-[C]ny.

Its [C]hard to love a man whose legs are [F]bent and para-[G]lysed    [Dm]
And the [C]wants and the needs of a woman your age, well [F]Ruby I rea-[G]lize [Dm]
But it [F]won't be long i've heard them say un-[C]til I not a[G]round [Dm]

Oh[C] Ru--[F]-by
Don't [Dm]Take your [F]love to [C]town

V4. -- pm= Palm Mute
      C-pm    C-pm       C-pm  C-pm      F-pm           G-pm

She's leavin' now 'cause I justheard the slammin'of the door
    C-pm  C-pm      C-pm     C-pm     F-pm          G-pm

The way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before
And if [Dm]I could move I'd get my gun and [C]put her in the [G]ground  [Dm]

Oh[C] Ru--[F]-by
Don't [Dm]Take your [F]love to [C]town

Oh [C]Ru---[F]by
For [Dm]God's sake [F]turn a-[C]round!
