I can hear a sirens song

                C        D          G

dancing deep inside my head

     G         D           G          C 

I close my eyes and think of her

         G               D        G

and those sweet lips of red

Late at night I dream again

As she lays upon this bed

With angel wings she comes to me

My lady Ruby Red

Her mother came from Shannon

Her dad from Ballyvaughn

They fell in love on one fine night

Nine months and she was born

 

The ship left port of Dublin

For dreams that lie ahead 

Arrived at Castle Garden where

They named her Ruby Red

 Arrived at Castle Garden where

they named her Ruby Red

Instrumental then

C D G C G D G

Under Roebling’s bridge we kissed

Her beauty and her charms

That night was cold but we kept warm

I held her in my arms

 

The way she looked in her white dress 

Like a bride if we had wed

I never will forget that day

And her flowing crown of red

 

 Ruby Red

 Ruby Red

 I never will forget that day

 And her flowing crown of red

I still hear a sirens song

Dancing deep inside my head

I close my eyes and think of her

and those sweet lips of red

Late at night I dream again

As she lays upon this bed

With angel wing she comes to me

My lady Ruby Red

 

 Ruby Red

 Ruby Red

 With angel wings she comes to me 

 My lady Ruby Red

 

 With angel wings she comes to me 

 My lady Ruby Red
