Ravishing Ruby
By Tom T. Hall

Album: The Rhymer and Other Five and Dimers (1973)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 1

C         G                C
Ravishing Ruby, she's been around for a while
          G               C
Ravishing Ruby, she was a truck stop child
            C7                      F
Born in the back of a rig somewhere near L.A.
          C                  G                 C
Ravishing Ruby, you poured a lot of hot coffee in your day

Ravishing Ruby believe anything you say
Just like her daddy said  said he'd be back some day
She was just fourteen  she grew up wild and free
And all the time she'd been waiting on him, she'd been waiting on you and me

          F                     C
Ravishing Ruby, she sleeps in a bunk out back
             G                                            C
Her days and nights are filled with dreams of a man named Smiling Jack
             F                            C
That was her daddy's name, that's all she ever knew
          G                                 C
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
Waiting on Smiling Jack, he'll come rolling by
And she wants to see him, she wants to touch him ether way dead or alive
