SEE RUBY FALL
(Johnny Cash / Roy Orbison)
Johnny Cash - 1969
Lester Flatt - 1969
Well, I knew someday Ruby would be leavin'
That she wasn't happy livin' quietly, quietly
'Cause she would get that bedroom look each mornin'
And I felt Ruby pull away from me
Yeah, so go downtown at nine o'clock this evenin'
Walk under that red light, then down the hall, down the hall
Look for the highest flyin' girl, that's Ruby
And if you'll wait your turn you'll see Ruby fall
Don't let her know that you even know me
She'll be tryin' to forget it all
And don't tell me how it was tonight tomorrow
'Cause I don't want to see Ruby fall
I didn't hold her back when she got restless
One man is not enough when she wants it all
Yeah, I let her go when I saw what she wanted
'Cause I don't care to see Ruby fall
