Helen Reddy – Leave Me Alone lyrics

Leave me alone (Ruby red dress)
Helen Reddy
Words and music by Linda Laurie

Big Ole Ruby Red Dress wanders round the town;
Talkin' to herself now, sometimes sittin' down.
Don't you get too close now, Ruby runs away;
Poor Ole Ruby Red Dress born on a sorry day
I can hear her say...


Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
Please leave me alone, now, leave me alone
Leave me alone, please leave me alone, yes leave me
Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
Please leave me alone, now leave me alone
Leave me alone, just leave me alone, oh leave me...

Big Ole Ruby Red Dress, everybody laughs;
Say she's got no future and never made no past.
Something hurt that Ruby, something she can't bear;
Ya look at her real close now, you see a little tear,
When she says now...


Some folks say some farm boy up from Tennessee;
Taught it all to Ruby, then just let her be.
Her daddy tried to hide it, tried to keep things cool;
But something happened to Ruby, she broke down like a fool;
Who just said now...
