Did you know?

The song's lyrics concern an apparently free-spirited woman, with Jagger singing,
"Who could hang a name on you?/When you change with every new day/Still I'm gonna miss you."
According to Keith Richards autobiography, Life, the song was written about his then girlfriend Linda Keith.
Linda had taken up with Jimi Hendrix, and had got involved with drugs.
She left Richards, and he tried to get her back.
He eventually went to her parents and told them she was going down a dark path.
Linda's father went to New York to collect her, and by order of court she was grounded.
Richards reports that Keith regarded this as a betrayal, and they did not speak again for many years.
According to Richards's autobiography, Keith survived, brought up a family, and now lives in New Orleans.

Rolling Stones - Ruby Tuesday

Author And Composer: Keith Richards
Category: Familiar Songs
She would never say   where she came from
Yesterday don't matter if it's gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows    she comes and goes

Chorus:

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still Im gonna miss you   

Don't question why she needs   to be so free
Shell tell you it's the only  way to be
She just can't be chained
To a life where nothings gained
And nothings lost   at such a cost

Repeat Chorus

There's no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you   will lose your mind
Aint life unkind?

Repeat Chorus x2
