Robert Mizzell |Medley | Ruby, The Gambler, Reuben James | TG4


She painted up her lips and rolled and curled her tinted hair Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere? The shadows on the wall tell me the sun is going down Oh Ruby, Please don’t take your love to town. It wasn’t me that started that old 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 sure could use some company 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 if I could move I’d get my gun and put her in the ground Oh Ruby Please don’t take your love to town On a warm summer’s eve On a train bound for nowhere I met up with the gambler We were both too tired to sleep So we took turns a-starin’ Out the window at the darkness The boredom overtook us And he began to speak Well he said, “Son, I’ve made a life Out of readin’ people’s faces Knowin’ what the cards read By the way they held their eyes So if you don’t mind me sayin’ I think you’re out of aces For a drink of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice You’ve got to know when to hold ’em Know when to fold ’em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money While you’re sittin’ at the table There’ll be time enough for countin’ When the dealin’s done You’ve got to know when to hold ’em Know when to fold ’em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money While you’re sittin’ at the table There’ll be time enough for countin’ When the dealin’s done Oh Reuben James In my song you live again And the phrases that I rhyme Are just the footsteps out of time From the time when I knew you, Reuben James Reuben James you still walk the furrowed field of my mind The faded shirt, the weathered brow The calloused hands upon the plow I loved you then and I love you now, Reuben Jam Reuben James, you still walk the furrowed field of my mind The faded shirt, the weathered brow The calloused hands upon the plow I loved you then and I love you now, Reuben Jam I loved you then and I love you now, Reuben Jam
