Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town - Kenny Rogers (Lyric Video) Subscribe http://bit.ly/2mictQ3
Oh Ruby by Dirty Looks 1988. Great song by a great band! Hope you all enjoy. Song and cover art are property of Atlantic Recordings.
"Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" is a song written by Mel Tillis about a paralyzed veteran of a "crazy Asian war" (given the time of its release, widely assumed but never explicitly stated to be the Vietnam War) who lies helplessly in bed as his wife "paint[s herself] up" to go out for the evening without him; he believes she is going in search of a lover, and as he hears the door slam behind her, he pleads for her to reconsider. The song was made famous by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition in 1969. "Ruby" was originally recorded in 1967 by Johnny Darrell, who scored a number nine country hit with it that year.
Kenny Rogers & The First Edition - Ruby "Don't Take Your Love To Town" "Super Hit", year: 1969
The First Edition recorded "Ruby" in June 1968. Written by country singer Mel Tellis about the Korean War, the song took new meaning during the Vietnam War. Prior to "Ruby" the band was known as the "The First Edition." To capitalize on their growing chart success, they were encouraged to release Ruby at the same time as their current single. The record company suggested a new name for the band - "Kenny Rogers & The First Edition" This version is from March 1972. I love how Kenny drops the bass beat around 1.52 boom chukka boom chukka boom chukka boom In my opinion, Mickey Jones's powerful drumming made the song unique to The First Edition. ♫ You've painted up your lips And rolled and curled your tinted hair Ruby are you contemplating Going out somewhere The shadow on the wall Tells me the sun is going down Oh Ruby Don't take your love to town It wasn't me That started that crazy Asian war But I was proud to go And do my patriotic chore And yes, it's true that I'm not the man I used to be Oh, Ruby I still need some company It's hard to love a man Whose legs are bent and paralyzed and won't serve the needs of a woman of your age Ruby, I realized but it won't be long I've heard them say until I'm not around Oh Ruby, Don't take your love to town She's leaving now cause I just heard the slamming of the door The way I know I've heard it Slam one hundred times before And if I could move I'd get my gun And put her in the ground Oh Ruby Don't take your love to town Oh, Ruby for God's sake turn around ...... ♫
I Love This Alternate Take Better Than The Original. Awesome And Mellow. I Can't Get Enough Of This Great Band. For God's Sakes Turn Around. I Love This Song. Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town
