[C]Rueben James in my [G7]song you'll live a [C]gain
And the [F]phrases that I [C]rhyme
Are just the [G7]footsteps out-a [C]time
From a [F]time when I [C]knew [G7]Rueben [C]James

Rueben James all the folks around Madison [G7]County cussed your [C]name
Just a [F]no account share-cropping [C]colored man
Who [G7]steal anything he [C]can  
And [F]everybody laid the [C]blame on [G7]Rueben [C]James

Rueben [F]James you still walk the fertile fields of my [C]mind
Faded [F]shirt weathered brow
Callused [C]hands upon the plow
I loved you [F]then and I love you now [G7]Rueben [C]James

Flora Graves the gossip of Madison [G7]County died with [C]child
And al[F]though your skin was [C]black
You were the [G7]one who didn't turn your [C]back
On a [F]hungry white child with [C]no name [G7]Rueben [C]James

Rueben James with your mind on my soul and a [G7]bible in your right [C]hand
You said [F]turn the other [C]cheek
There's a [G7]better world waiting for the [C]meek
In my [F]mind these words re [C]main from [G7]Rueben [C]James

Rueben [F]James you still walk the fertile fields of my [C]mind
Faded [F]shirt weathered brow
Callused [C]hands upon the plow
I loved you [F]then and I love you now [G7]Rueben [C]James

Rueben James in my song you'll live a gain
And the phrases that I rhyme
Are just the footsteps out-a time
From a time when I knew Rueben James

Rueben James all the folks around Madison County cussed your name
Just a no account share-cropping colored man
Who steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Rueben James

Rueben James you still walk the fertile fields of my mind
Faded shirt weathered brow
Callused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now Rueben James

Flora Graves the gossip of Madison County died with child
And although your skin was black
You were the one who didn't turn your back
On a hungry white child with no name Rueben James

Rueben James with your mind on my soul and a bible in your right hand
You said turn the other cheek
There's a better world waiting for the meek
In my mind these words re main from Rueben James

Rueben James you still walk the fertile fields of my mind
Faded shirt weathered brow
Callused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now Rueben James
