    Ruby - The Dave Rawlings Machine

    Capo 2 play G Bm C Ebmaj7 move C up x3 frets

    Intro verse

     

    Ruby, (C#m) let down your golden hair

    When I'm standing

    At the (Fmaj7) bottom of your stairs

    Ruby, (C#m) I can see your TV on

    But the people there,

    They (Fmaj7) flicker and they're gone

     

    Bridge(Db) x40050  x20030

    So let down your golden (Db) hair

    For me tonight

    Let down your golden (Db) hair

    For me to climb

     

    Chorus

    Just like an old-time tele(Db)graph man

    I came here with a simple job to do (F#,Ab)

    'Cause that news coming down the (Db)wire 

    Says that your head's on fire

    And I'm trying to get a message

    Thr-ough to you

     

    Verse

    Ruby, (C#m) you ain't lonely yet

    With your crystal

    And your (Fmaj7) Russian cigarette

    Ruby, well (C#m) haven't you heard before?

    What good’s the finest tower

    When it (Fmaj7) hasn't got a door?

    Bridge

    So let down your golden (Db) hair

    For me to climb

    Let down your (Db) golden hair

    For me tonight

    Chorus

    Just like an old-time tele(Db)graph man

    I came here with a simple job to do (F#,Ab)

    'Cause that news coming down the (Db)wire

    Says that your bed's on fire

    And I'm trying to get a message

    Through to you
