I will leave behind all of my clothes I wore when I was with you All I need′s my railroad boots

And my leather jacket As I say goodbye to Ruby's arms Although my heart is breaking I will steal away out through your blinds For soon you will be waking The morning light has washed your face And everything is turning blue now Hold on to your pillow case There′s nothing I can do now As I say goodbye to Ruby's arms You'll find another soldier And I swear to God by Christmas time There′ll be someone else to hold you The only thing I′m taking is The scarf off of your clothesline I'll hurry past your chest of drawers And your broken wind chimes As I say goodbye, I′ll say goodbye Say goodbye to Ruby's arms I will feel my way down the darkened hall And out into the morning The hobos at the freight yards Have kept their fires burning Said, "Jesus Christ, this goddamn rain!" Will someone put me on a train? I′ll never kiss your lips again Or break your heart As I say goodbye, I'll say goodbye Say goodbye to Ruby′s arms
