{title:Rueben James}
{subtitle:Kenny Rogers}
{key: D}

Rueben [D]James in my [A7]song you'll live a[D]gain
And the [G]phrases that I [D]rhyme
Are just the [A7]footsteps out of [D]time
From a [G]time when I [D]knew [A7]Rueben [D]James

Rueben [D]James 
all the [D]folks around Madison [A7]County cussed your [D]name
Just a [G]no account share-croppin [D]colored man
Who'd [A7]steal anything he [D]can
And [G]everybody laid the [D]blame on [A7]Rueben [D]James

{soc}
Rueben [G]James you still walk the furrowed fields of my [D]mind
Faded [G]shirt, weathered brow
Callused [D]hands upon the plow
I loved you [C]then and I love you now 
Rueben [D]James
{eoc}

Flora [D]Graves 
the [D]gossip of Madison [A7]County died with [D]child
And al[G]though your skin was [D]black
You were the [A7]one who didnt turn your [D]back
On a [G]hungry white child with [D]no name [A7]Rueben [D]James

Rueben [D]James 
with your [D]mind on my soul and a [A7]bible in your right [D]hand
You said [G]turn the other [D]cheek
Theres a [A7]better world waitin for the [D]meek
In my [G]mind these words re[D]main from [A7]Rueben [D]James

{soc}
Rueben [G]James you still walk the furrowed fields of my [D]mind
Faded [G]shirt, weathered brow
Callused [D]hands upon the plow
I loved you [C]then and I love you now 
Rueben [D]James
{eoc}

Rueben [E]James 
one dark [E]cloudy day they [B7]brought you from the [E]field
And to your [A]lonely pine box [E]came
Just a [B7]preacher me and the [E]rain
To [A]sing one last re[E]frain for [B7]Rueben [E]James

{soc}
Rueben [A]James you still walk the furrowed fields of my [E]mind
Faded [A]shirt, weathered brow
Callused [E]hands upon the plow
I loved you [D]then and I love you now 
Rueben [E]James
{eoc}

{comment:Repeat Chorus and fade out.}
