OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I love a girl and Ruby is her name
Left allemande the corner
Dosado your own
Left allemande and you weave the ring
Ruby-Ruby how I want you
Swing the girl and you promenade the ring
Ruby-Ruby-Ruby will you be mine


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru it's 4 hands round you go
You do a right & left thru
Swing thru and then boys run right
You ferris wheel and the centers pass thru
Star thru, slide thru, the corner you swing
Swing the girl and promenade the ring
Ruby-Ruby-Ruby will you be mine


TAG

Ruby-Ruby-Ruby will you be mine
Lyrics

I said I love a girl and-a Ruby is her name
This girl doesn't love me but I love her just the same
Wo oh oh, Ruby, Ruby, how I want you
Like a ghost I'm-a gonna haunt you
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, won't you be mine?
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
Sometime

Well, each time I see you, baby, my heart cries
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
I tell you, I'm gonna steal you away from all those guys
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
From the happy day I met you
I made up my mind that I was gonna get you
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, won't you be mine?
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
Sometime

(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
Hey hey, hey hey
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)

Now I love this girl, I said Ruby is her name
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
When this girl looks at me she just sets my soul aflame
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
I've got some hugs and-a kisses too, yeah
I'm gonna give them all to you, now
Ruby, Ruby, when will you be mine?
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
Gonna catch you sometime

(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)
Hey hey, hey hey
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)

A-listen, listen, listen, now
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, won't you be mine?
(Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby)

Lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
Recorded by The Drifters; Dion.
