JOHN CANNON: Music

Ruby (Meet Me Tonight)

(JOHN CANNON)
John Cannon

With so many families breaking up and starting again, I felt it was time for something positive to be said about it.  This was inspired by a TV show with Sela Ward and Billy Campbell called "Once And Again."

RUBY

Words and Music by John Cannon

 

Ruby, meet me tonight.  Ruby, meet me tonight

We’ve come to know each other well.  I need a quiet place to tell you

What is on my mind and in my heart

 

Ruby, meet me tonight.  Ruby, meet me tonight

We’ve known each other for so long.  The night has finally come along to tell you

What it means for me to be with you

 

You’ve got your kids and I’ve got mine

Still, I’d like to try it with you one more time

Ruby when I’m with you it feels so right

SOLO

You’ve got your ways and I’ve got mine

I’d like to be with you all of my life

Ruby when I’m with you it feels so right

 

Ruby, meet me tonight. Ruby, meet me tonight

A chance like this comes just one time and that is why you know that I’m the one who

Will always be with you,

With you always any way I can

Ruby, meet me tonight

Ruby, meet me tonight

Ruby, meet me tonight
