Ruby fakes a heart attack.
Breaks my momma’s back.
Mulish girl at 92 and her shotgun’s aimed at you but she’s still standing, smilin’ at your grave.
She’s a gal from Houston, Texas with a wig slung round her face.

Cock-eyed moonshine mamma.
Whiskey drinkin’ dame.
No man ever tamed her.
Spit’s her middle name.
But she’s still standing, smilin’ at your grave.
She’s a gal from Houston, Texas with a wig slung round her face.

Yankees tried to tame her, tried to bring her to her knees.
But there’s no reining Ruby, not even “pretty please.”
I love her she’s my mother’s child; love her like a friend.
She may be near the pearly gates but her legend never ends.

Ruby fakes a heart attack.
Breaks my momma’s back.
Mulish girl at 92 and her shotgun’s aimed at you.
But she’s still standing; smilin’ at her grave.
Cuz she’s a gal from Houston, Texas with no reason to behave.
