Last Night Out


                 He sits there by his window-
                  Staring out into the night
                 Wond'ring what she's doing..
                   She knows it isn't right.

                To leave him with his mem'ries
              Of the times that they have known
                 To come awake one morning
                And to find that she was gone.

                He told her when it happened-
                 That he would set her free.
               She told him that she loved him
                   And didn't want to be.

                    She's just a girl of 25
                With all her wants and needs
                He's just a cowboy, paralyzed
                   It seems nobody heeds.

                  It happened at the rodeo
                  In Houston just last year-
               He drew a bull no man had rode
                Her heart was filled with fear.

              She called him on the mobie phone
                 Somewhere along the route
           When she found out what bull he'd drwan
                She asked him to "turn out".

             He promised he'd do what she asked
                 And would not make the ride
               She didn't know until they called
                  How bad her lover'd lied.

                He bucked off and got hung up
                  They finally got him free
                Not knowing that a half a man
                    Was all he'd ever be.

                  She comes in of a morning
                 And smells of smoke and gin
                 She gives evasive answers
             When he asks her where she's been.

               He's had all he can take of this;
                   Her having all the fun-
              She'll find him waiting up for her
                  This time he holds a gun.

Ruby, don't take your love to town!
Sad story all around and well written as usual.

This reminded me of that song by Kenny Rogers, 'Ruby' or was it called 'Don't Take Your Love To Town'?(I'm bad with titles)!
This is excellent writing, Gunslinger! Never a dull tale do you tell!
