RAVISHING RUBY (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1973 Ravishing Ruby, she'd been around for awhile Ravishing Ruby, she was a truckstop child Born in the back of a rig somewhere near L.A. Ravishing Ruby, you poured a lot o' hot coffee in your day Ravishing Ruby, believe anything you say Just like her daddy said, said he'd be back someday She was just fourteen, she grew up wild and free And all the time she'd be waitin' on him, she'd been waitin' on you and me Ravishing Ruby, she sleeps in a bunk out back Her days and nights are filled with dreams of a man named Smilin' Jack That was her daddy's name and that's all she ever knew Ravishing Ruby ain't got time for guys like me and you Ravishing Ruby, a beautiful young girl now Ravishing Ruby, she made a solemn vow Waitin' on Smilin' Jack, he'll come rollin' by And she wants to see him, she wants to touch him either way, dead or alive Ravishing Ruby, she sleeps in a bunk out back Her days and nights are filled with dreams of a man named Smilin' Jack That was her daddy's name, that's all she ever knew Ravishing Ruby ain't got time for guys like me and you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
