lyrics

Ruby's Song


Ruby lived on Brunswick St, took what she could get
Slept underneath the railway bridge,
When the nights got too wet
The cops were pryin’, and they’d come down hard
When they were feeling it?
She called to me as I walked on by
“Mister, you got a cigarette?”

Big Jim was a gamblin’ man
Lady Luck would hold his hand
But never take him further than the door
Seduce him with temptation you could see the hope
Burning in his eyes
Big man with a big old plan but he just a rolling dice

Can you tell me what it's all about?
Can you help me underdstand?

River keep on running, I watch it pass me by,
Sometimes it’s a long way to the other side
Wheels keep on turning, rollin down the line
Ride on through the darkness to the other side

Mary lives on the outskirts o’ town, in a one room country shack
Filled w nothing but memories (so sad)
She was a wife and a loving momma,
But one night the old man just snapped
Put the kids in the back of the car, and he drove into the lake

Can you tell me what it's all about?
Can you help me underdstand?

River keep on running, I watch it pass me by,
Sometimes it’s a long way to the other side
Wheels keep on turning, rollin down the line
Ride on through the darkness to the other side

I was loaded down with a memory, it was all heartache and pain,
Funny how you can get on the heavy side of everything
I was countin on the break of day, to get me through the night
My mama said just get back up on your horse, and keep on riding
My mama said just get back up on your horse, and keep on riding
My mama said just get back up on your horse, and keep on riding
My mama said just get back up on your horse, and keep on riding
