This is so beautiful and so sad. To many people wind up losing everything over their own selfishness. Once they lose it they find it's to late and can never get it back. So sad...

|Reader Reviews for "Ruby Diamonds (for: SOMEONE STILL IN MY HEART)"
Reviewed by Bill Murray (author) 2/11/2003
Just a little extra to this song. It is based on real life, not only for what has happened at the AD, but what happened in my childhood over a half century ago. This is a down home Hank Williams shit kicker. My Mother who I have just been able to reconcile my feelings toward ... in many ways fit Ruby Diamonds. She was an alcoholic and could not stay away from the bars. I used to dance in the barroom as a young child and the drunks threw money on the floor. Momma couldn't help it, and at this moment I am crying cause I was ashamed of her and would not stand up for her. My Step Father was very brutal and used to beat her and kick her with his steel toed miners boots. One time he even stabbed her. Momma
wound up in a mental hospital with a wet
brain. Oh Momma please forgive me. I was so
wrong to do this. I love you Momma. Billy
Extra marital affairs ... at least so
they say ... are based on lack of
romance in the home. We who become
involved believe this. And in many
cases this is true. Sometimes, a
partner who has led a healthy, vigorous
sex life finds that for either physical
or mental reasons or both, the physical
love stops at home. The song is
titled: "Ruby Diamonds", but it could
have just as easily been titled: "Bill
Diamonds." And the song is not just
about one person ... but applies to
many, many people at the AD.
BARS HELD ME FOR MANY YEARS AND ELINATED ANY
CHANCE FOR LOVE.
NOW THE BARS ARE NOT VISIBLE AND I CAN'T FIGHT MY WAY THROUGH THEM.
