C      Am              Em
Ruby I hope I see you, I've waited all this week
C          Am          Em
For you to walk my way, your soul will capture me
C          Am                Em
Your momma painted your room a shade of pink, she said
C             Am            Em
But with your great arrival that shade has turned to red.

Interlude: C  Am  Em

C    Am            Em
Ruby take my hand, please lead me to the Promised Land
C              Am         Em
Tell me, where am I from, your eyes say, "Shada de da dum."
C            Am       Em
Ruby, you're royalty, in your hometown, they all call you "Queen"
C               Am           Em
Tell me, where are you from, your eyes say, "Shada de da dum."

You have fallen from the sky, how high? how high?
F         Am           G               C        F
You're an angel fallen down, won't you tell us of the clouds

You have fallen from the sky, how high? how high?

We're all diseased
C    Am      Em
You hold the key.

F         Am           G               C        F
You're an angel fallen down, won't you tell us of the clouds

You have fallen from the sky, how high? how high?

    I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!!!!

    Any tips for my other friends who can’t play as well and have trouble transitioning from *any chord* to Em?

    • Well ive never had trouble with EM but I used to with G. I just slowly switched from AM to a chord and eventually wounded up faster untill i got the hang of it.

    If you want a simple riff of the intro and verse, this is a pretty easy one I came up with <3

    Happy day after Tyler’s birthday!!!

  5. regional_at_melanie

    such an easy song to learn ?

  6. Addict With A Fanfiction

    It repeats “Tell our dad I’m sorry” more times than listed. This wouldn’t bother me, but the number of times isn’t even close.

  7. Boopdeedoop

    This was after I transposed it to – 5

  8. Boopdeedoop

    I just played G instead of Em. It sounds better to me anyways. Hope that helps!
