Lyrics

FOR RUBY

She was born just like she left us
Her eyes were open wide
And they filled with starlight when she left this world behind

Her beauty never faded
She never did complain
When the spirit came to take her
She was born again

C’mon home sweet Ruby where the bluebonnets grow
Where the hills they reach the heavens and bad days never known

Her grace a holy moment
A blessing on this land
And anyone who knew her
Would truly understand

And though she used to tell us
Nothing stays the same
Her virtue never faded
Her glory never changed

C’mon home seet Ruby where the bluebonnets grow
Where the hills they reach the heavens and bad days never known
Where cowboys still ride horses and folks still work the land
And the pecans are the sweetest where we walked hand in hand

Paint these hills of Texas
Paint ‘em ruby red
Let the indian paintbrush like wildfire spread

C’mon home sweet Ruby where the bluebonnets grow
Where the hills they reach the heavens and bad days never known
Paint the hills of Texas paint ‘em ruby red
Let the indian paintbrush like wildfire spread

She was born just like she left us
Her eyes were open wide
And they filled with starlight when she left this world behind
