Words by Frank Lewin. Music by W. A. Pratt.
My heart is lost to a charming maid with eyes of heavenly blue,
With golden curls and teeth of pearl, of lovers the truest of the true.
I asked her for her heart, a story of her love she told;
'Twas a sweet and simple story of a love as pure as gold.
Ruby, Ruby, you are my loved one, you are an angel;
Faults you have none, eyes as bright as stars that shine above
Has my Ruby, my own dear little love.
On ev'ry evening I can spare, be it rain or be if shine,
I meet my dear little Ruby, my true and only love divine;
Then we do merrily talk of that happy day so near,
When I wed my little Ruby, all to me that is dear.-Refrain.
