      About "Ruby Brown"

      Lyrics for Deana Carter - "Ruby Brown"

      She danced in the dirty streets
      Satin shoes tied to her feet
      People 'round here said she was a sight

      Every night when the sun went down
      She'd curtsey and take a bow
      To the man in the moon and the dim street lights

      We held in high regard
      The rose in the mission yard
      Singing, "Buffalo Gals won't you come out tonight"

      And her name was Ruby Brown
      And she came through shanty town
      Like a queen without a crown
      And her name was Ruby Brown

      Long about ten years ago
      She disappeared, why no one knows
      But some say she was running for her life

      'Cause a mean looking man in a limousine
      Came down from New Orleans
      He said he came here looking for his wife

      And her name was Ruby Brown
      And she came through shanty town
      Like a queen without a crown
      And her name was Ruby Brown

      Some say he beat her bad
      'Til she just went plain mad
      But I say she went where he could never go

      And her name was Ruby Brown
      And she came through shanty town
      Like a queen without a crown
      And her name was Ruby Brown
