Hi I do not understand: "do not take your love to town" in the song of The Killers
Mayby someone can help me ?
You've painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair, Ruby are you contemplating going out somewhere? The shadows on the wall tell me the sun is going down, Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town. It wasn't me that started that old crazy Asian war, But I was proud to go and do my patriotic chore, And yes, it's true that I'm not the man I used to be, Oh Ruby, I still need some company. It's hard to love a man whose legs are bent and paralyzed, And the wants and needs of a woman your age really I realize, But it won't be long, I've heard them say, until I'm not around, Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town. She's leaving now cause I just heard the slamming of the door, The way I know I heard its slams one hundred times before, And if I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground, Oh Ruby, don't take your love to town. Oh Ruby, for God's sake, turn around
The man is asking Ruby (the woman) to not go to town to look for love or the physical attention of a man - something he could not provide due to physical disabilities he has as a result of wounds he received during the war.
