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,
Aint true love a funny thing?
Big man, you got money in your hand,
So what?
Youre 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,
Aint true love a funny thing?
Big man, you got money in your hand,
So what?
Youre 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,
Aint true love a funny thing?
Ruby Ann took the hand of this poor, poor man,
Aint true love a funny thing
