[Intro]
Am Em C G F#
Am Em C G F#

[Verse 1]
Am              Em                 C       G F#
I met Ruby on a bus from state to state
Am           
She was tired
    Em
I was timid
         C    G F#
It was late
Am                   Em                C   G F#
She was to marry her southland sweetheart
Am             Em
bitter-sweet I am
         C               G F#
when it comes to young love
Am                Em                  C   G F#
James was a well-known man around town
Am                    Em
He sold houses to the masses
        C                  G F#
in the state of Burley Down
      Am              Em             C                   G F#
And I saw him leaving slowly with a young man at his hip
Am                Em
Where did my love go?
            C               G F#
He was the sailor of my ship


[Interlude]
Am Em C G F#
Am Em C G F#

[Verse 2]
Am           Em                     C G F#
And Jimmy was the best she ever had
Am                Em           
When you think you cannot breath
C                         G   F#
and you know you'd rather die instead
Am                       Em
That's when you know you have to go,
C                     G   F#
and he knew he had to leave
Am                  Em
So in the state of where you are
C
roll up the windows
        G        F#       Am Em C G F#
saying drive an old blue car
Am                         Em
Ruby does he hold you like

he held me so
C                        
After, does he rub your back
     G       F#
and sing ya slow?
Am                       Em
Take ya to highest high and
        C   G F#
lowest low?
    Am   Em         C      G F#
Oh, Ruby, I don't think so
Am                Em                  C   G F#
James was a well-known man around town
Am                    Em
He sold houses to the masses
        C                  G F#
in the state of Burley Down
      Am              Em             C                   G F#
And I saw him leaving slowly with a young man at his hip
