Leave Me Alone Ruby Red Dress

Words and music by Linda Laurie

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

Leave me alone, please leave me alone, yes leave me

Leave me alone won't you leave me alone

Please leave me alone, no leave me alone

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, shomething 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 to a fool

who just said now
