      Kenny Rogers - Reuben James Música y Letra

      Reuben James
      In my song you live again
      And the phrase that I rhyme
      Are just a footstep out of time
      From the time when I knew you
      Reuben James
      Reuben James, all the folks around Hadison County
      Cussed your name
      You're just a no-count, sharecropping colored man
      You'd steal anything you can
      And everybody laid the blame on Reuben James
      Reuben James, for you still walk
      Over fields of my mind
      Faded shirt, weathered brow
      Colored hands upon the plow
      Loved you then and I love you now
      Reuben James
      For a grave
      The gossiper of Hadison County died with chide
      Although your skin was black
      You were the one that didn't turn your back
      On the hungry white child with no name
      Reuben James, Reuben James
      With your mind on the soul
      And a bottle in your right hand
      You said turn the other cheek
      For there's a better world awaiting for the meek
      In my mind these words remain from Reuben James
      Reuben James one dark cloudy day
      They brought you from the field
      And to your lonely crambox
      Came just a preacher
      Me and the rain
      Just to sing one last refrain to Reuben James
