Reuben James (魯本·詹姆斯) - Kenny Rogers (肯尼·羅傑斯)

Ruben James in my song you live again

 

And the phrases that I rhyme

 

Are just the footsteps out of time

From the time when I knew you Ruben James

 

Ruben James all the folks around Madison County

Cussed your name just a no

Count share cropping colored man

Who would steal anything he can

 

And never but laid the blame on Ruben James

 

Ruben James you still walk furrowed fields on my mind

 

The faded skirt the weathered brow

The calloused hand up on the plow

I loved you then and I love you now Ruben James

 

Flora Gray a gossip of Madison County died with child

 

And although your skin was black

You words wanna did turn your back

 

On a hungry white child with no name Ruben James

 

Ruben James with your mind on my soul

And the bible in your right hand

 

You said turn the other cheek

 

A better better world is a waiting for the meek

In my mind these words remain from Ruben James

 

Ruben James you still walk furrowed fields on my mind

 

The faded skirt the weathered brow

The calloused hand up on the plow

I loved you then and I love you now Ruben James

 

Ruben James one dark cloudy day

That brought you from the fields

 

And to your lonely pine box came

 

Just a preacher me and the rain

To sing one last refrain for Ruben James

 

Ruben James you still walk furrowed fields on my mind

 

The faded skirt the weathered brow

The calloused hand up on the plow

I loved you then and I love you now Ruben James

 

Ruben James you still walk furrowed fields on my mind

 

The faded skirt the weathered brow

The calloused hand up on the plow

I loved you then and I love you now Ruben James
