lyrics

ruby ann she’s about 16 feet tall
ruby ann don’t take shit from anyone at all
ruby ann where you gonna go
when the saloon open ruby start to roll
slippery susan she ‘s back in town
slippery susan she’s got a brand new raccoon fur gown
slippery sue i saw her down at that saloon
scratchin’ at a lottery ticket with a blackened spoon
jimmy john lee’s gone west again
jimmy john lee don’t give a shit about the rest of them
jimmy lee he’s always got girls never got friends
but those girls have wheels and those wheels have wings
ruby ann she’s out looking for her man
jimmy john lee he done long ago left town
slippery sue you should have put that ticket down and looked around
you got red red flowers blooming on your raccoon gown
slippery sue she was buried in a pauper’s grave
and ruby ann died of old age in a prison cage
jimmy john lee that bastard got away
but wait till sue and ruby see him again down in the devils den
wait till sue and ruby see him again now they’re the best of friends
wait till sue and ruby see him again
spring 98 New Orleans

about

Myshkin Warbler Astoria, Oregon

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
