Marty Robbins – Ruby Ann Lyrics

I said hello to the man that tried to win your hand
A long time ago
I tried to smile
As he talked of the days when he was your beau
But I could see, he was a-shamin’ me
When he talked of his wealth and fame
“Ruby Ann took the hand of this poor poor man
Ain’t true love a funny thing?”

Big man, you got money in your hand
So what?
You’re at a table for two, but still there’s only you
Big shot!
Well your money can’t buy, if your power can’t hold
You can’t romance your fame
Ruby Ann took the hand of this poor poor man
Ain’t true love a funny thing?

Big man, you got money in your hand
So what?
You’re at a table for two, but still there’s only you
Big shot!
Well, your money can’t buy, if your power can’t hold
You can’t romance your fame
Ruby Ann took the hand of this poor poor man
Ain’t true love a funny thing?
Ruby Ann took the hand of this poor poor man
Ain’t true love a funny thing?
