This song is by Bobby Womack and appears on the album Understanding (1972).

Mother
My Mother
Ya underestimate such a child
The trouble was only three
I still had had eyes, Oh, I could see
I could'nt respect your mama
That's why I called you, called you by your first name
I said Ruby Dean
Don't take your love to town

Ruby Dean, No, No
Don't take your love to town, don't do it now
'Cause I can't stand to hear the screen door slam
I know leaving me, why can't you let it be
You're everything to me, just too blind too see
True Ruby Dean, please stop doing my dad this way
Don't take your love to town

Ruby don't take your love to town
He breeds you and me far as the eyes can see
Let my dad go free
Don't mind you doin' it to me Ruby Dean
You've been good to me, why don't you let him be
Please Ruby Dean, Oh Ruby Dean
Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby Dean
You take your love to town
Ruby Dean, Don't take your love to town
Don't take your love to town

Why don't ya spend a little
More time around your home
I can look in my dad's eyes
I can see that he's tired of being alone
Ruby Ruby Dean, Ruby Dean
