Reuben

Reuben

The Be Good Tanyas

Well, who's gonna shoe your pretty little foot?
Who's gonna glove your hand?
Who's gonna kiss your red ruby lips?
And who's gonna be your man?

Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?
Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?

Well, papa's gonna shoe my pretty little foot
Mama's gonna glove my hand
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips
And I don't need no man

Well, I don't need no man
No, I don't need no man
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips
And I don't need no man

Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?
Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?

Well, the longest train that I ever saw
It was 90 coaches long
And the only man that I ever loved
He was on that train and gone

Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?
Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?

Oh, where'd you get that hat you wear
And that coat you got so fine?
Well, I got my hat from a railroad man
And my coat from a worker in the mine

Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?
Is that you Reuben?
Reuben, where have you been so long?

Well, Reuben made a train, he put it on the track
Run it to, the Lord knows where
Well, Reuben made a train, he put it on the track
Run it to, the Lord knows where
