about

I love Ruby. I has read an article about some famous musicians who write songs that speak to their faith though they never directly use references to God and Christ. I though, I think I'll try that and see what happens. Ruby is the result. Again, it's about the prodigal trying to find his way back if Ruby will take him in. Ruby is reference to the blood of Jesus Christ, but just enjoy the song.

lyrics

Ruby won't you help me?
Help me find my way.
'Cause I'm a sad and lonely boy
And I need a place to stay
So Ruby, hold me tight
Tonight could be the night
Our dreams start coming true
Oh yeah, Ruby me and you

Ruby, can you help me?
Help me get it right
I need someone to love me
And get me through the night
So Ruby, hold me tight
Tonight could be the night
Our dreams start coming true
Oh yeah, Ruby me and you.

Ruby could you take me in?
Maybe just this time
I've been down on the highway
And there ain't no one down there giving rides
It just might be a sign
Tonight could be the night
Our dreams start coming true
Oh yea, Ruby me and you

It just might be a sign
Tonight could be the night
Our dreams start coming true
Oh yeah, Ruby me and you

Oh yeah...

about

Rand Swift And The Wayward Band Seattle, Washington

I've been a songwriter forever writing a number of choruses over the years. But then things changed and I found myself out of that world. In retrospect, by some gracious act of love for me.

I continued over the years to write, mostly singing and playing for small crowds - me, the cat, the dog.

It was my middle son, also a songwriter and recording artist, deciding these must be produced. Thanks.
