Verse 1:
D                             G      
When the sun hits it right on its way down 
D                                         A
It was the prettiest thing in our little town. 
D                                          G
Every hour I'd sneak a glance over at the plastic frame 
                                  D                 A       D
and cracked glass that holds the picture of Ruby's two sad daughters.
D                                      G           
Last mill closed when I was nine and Daddy left and Momma cried again, 
D                                   A      D
I spent my nights cleaning Ruby's floors, just another cafe
      G                       D                                 A        
on a wind swept highway the farmers b***hed, we're no good at football anymore. 

Chorus 1:
G                           D
In this land that knows no laughter 
Bm                          A
In this land that holds no water, 
D                         G      A       D        G  D  A
we were all in love with Ruby's two sad daughters.

Verse 2:
D                      G
One went way out west, one went way wrong, 
D                              A
One left at seventeen and the other couldn't wait that long.
D                                          G
Neither went anywhere with me, not to the games or the Dairy Queen. 
D                                       A          
Both split with the first boy who lied sweet and looked vaguely mean.

Chorus 2: 
G                           D
In this land that knows no laughter 
Bm                         A
In this land that hold no water,
D                         G      A        D
We were all in love with Ruby's two sad daughters.

Bridge:
Bm                 A       Bm                  A
Why so pretty and forlorn? Why so permanently blue?
D                              G   A      D   G  D  A
I guess ours wasn't much of a kingdom to rule. 

Verse 3:
D                     G
Now when the sun hits its right on its way down, 
D                                             A
It's still the prettiest thing in our little town. 
D                                        G
Every hour I sneak a glance over at the plastic frame 
                                                      A        D
and I fix the glass that holds the picture of Ruby's two sad daughters.
                              G      A       D
Why did hope leave town with Ruby's two sad daughters? 

Repeat D G until end of song.


enjoy :)

great song
-cowboy3193 | 2/21/2004
I really, truly think this is the best song
ever written, in the history of mankind. Josie
might rip me for not going with Dylan here,
but Townes has my vote with this one ;D
