Big ole Ruby red dress wanders round the town
Talkin' to herself now, sometimes sitten 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
Oh 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
God leave me along, 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
You look at her real close now, you see a little tear
Oh when she says now

Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
Please leave me alone now, God leave me alone
Oh leave me alone, just leave me alone, please leave me
Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
Please leave me alone, now leave me alone
Oh leave me along, just leave me alone, oh leave me

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 to a fool
Who just said now

Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
Please leave me alone, now leave me alone
Oh 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
God leave me along, just leave me alone, please leave me
Leave me alone, won't you leave me alone
