Well it's sure good to see you, but my how you've changed
Since the last time I saw you, girl, you been rearranged
I always said your people was just like my kin
When I was down and out, they would always take me in

Oh, I love you, my baby Ruth
Never lie to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, always raise a smile

When I was livin' on the highway, you didn't turn me out
I've lived in your closet and you fed me by mouth
My boots were my pillow wrapped under my head
I kept all my stuff stashed under your bed

Oh, I love you, my baby Ruth
Never lie to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, you always raise a smile

Oh, I love you, my Baby Ruth
Never like to you, I only tell the truth
Oh, I loved you since you were a child
Every time I see you, girl, you always raise a smile
