i will leave behind all of
my clothes, i wore when i
was with you, all i need’s
my railroad boots, and my
leather jacket, as i say
goodbye to ruby’s arms, al-
though my heart is break-ing, i will steal away out
through your blinds, for
soon you will be waking.

the morning light has
washed your face, and
everything is turning blue
now, hold on to your pil-
low case there’s nothing i
can do now, as i say good-
bye to ruby’s arms, you’ll
find another soldier, and i
swear to god by christ-
mastime, there’ll be some-
one else to hold you.

the only thing i’m taking
is the scarf off of your
clothesline, i’ll hurry past
your chest of drawers, and
your broken wind chimes,
as i say goodbye i’ll say
goodbye, say goodbye to
ruby’s arms.

i’ll feel my way down the
darken hall, and out into
the morning, the hobos at
the freightyards, have kept
their fires burning, so jesus
christ. this goddamn rain,
will some one put me on a
train, i’ll never kiss your
lips again, or break your
heart, as i say goodbye i’ll
say goodbye, say goodbye
to ruby’s arms.
