Tom Waits

Ruby's arms (Audio)

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.

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 clotheline
I'll hurry past your chest of drawers
and your broken window chimes.

As I say goodbye, I'll say goodbye, 
say goodbye to Ruby's arms.


I'll feel my way down the darken hall 
and out into the morning
The hobos at the freightyards
have kept their fires burning.

So Jesus Christ, this goddamn rain 
will someone put me on a train
I'll never kiss your lips again
or break your heart.
