Well, Ruby she was a redneck beauty
She loved Little Richard and sang Tootie Fruitie
And wanted her name in lights and wore her dresses tight
Yeah, Ruby was a victim of circumstance
'Cause she liked to wiggle and boogie dance
Out in the country she hardly ever got the chance.

She had a local band, played the local bars
Had the local boys breathin' hard
She had hillbilly eyes that could shine in the dark
She had a country soul and a rock 'n' roll heart
And her whole body shook when she stood up and played the piano
And the boys say, play Ruby play, we really like the way you do it
Play Ruby play, we love the way you get into it
She made the young men scream and the old men moan
Rock on, rock on, rock on.

Sometimes at night with the full moon beamin'
She would run around the mountain kickin' and screamin'
Sayin' if I don't get out on the road I'm gonna explode
Last time I saw her she was down in the city
Shakin' and shoutin', making plenty
Yeah, Ruby was a sight to behold, she was on a roll.

She had a local band, played the local bars
Had the local boys breathin' hard
She had hillbilly eyes that could shine in the dark
She had a country soul and a rock 'n' roll heart
And her whole body shook when she stood up and played the piano
And the boys say, play Ruby play, we really like the way you do it
Play Ruby play, we love the way you get into it
She made the young men scream and the old men moan
Rock on, rock on, rock on.

Rock on, rock on, rock on.

Yeah, Ruby she was a redneck beauty
She loved Little Richard and sang Tootie Fruitie...

Every night it's the same old plan
And I leave work at five-o-five
Been doing my best to forget about her
But she's driving me out of my mind

When I get home, I know what I'll find
How I wish that it wasn't so
There'll be no one there to hold me tonight
In that house on old lonesome road

I recall how we laughed
When we read the name
In the paper before we moved in
And after we did our friends all asked
If that house was lonesome back then

We were so young, our dreams were so new
There's just no way that we could have known
The irony of the place where we loved
That house on old lonesome road

It's only shingles and shutters
And a case of worn out stairs
Just like my old heart they need repair
Maybe I should sell it
Yeah, maybe that would be the best
Maybe then someone else could find
Some love at that address

I used to love that old house so much
Back before she went away
Now everything there is just gathering dust
I should clean it up if I'm gonna stay

But I don't have too much time anymore
I'm too busy talking to ghosts
'Cause her memory, keeps me company
In that house on old lonesome road

It's only shingles and shutters
And a case of worn out stairs
Just like my old heart they need repair
Maybe I should sell it
Yeah, maybe that would be the best
Maybe then someone else could find
Some love at that address

Every night it's the same old plan
And I leave work at five-o-five
Been doing my best to forget about her
But she's driving me out of my mind
