Money cannot buy true love or happiness. Money can provide the things that we need, but it would only be a temporary thing. What we all want is something that will last a long time not something superficial. When it comes to love, we want something real. “Ruby Ann” Marty Robbins‘ song is about the difference between true love and buying love with money.

“Ruby Ann” and Other Women’s Name

Names of a woman were commonly used in country songs before, like Conway Twitty’s Linda on my Mind,” Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” and Kenny Rogers’ “Lucille.” Marty Robbins’ song “Ruby Ann” was his ninth song to top at number one on the chart. His song was released as a single in 1962. “Ruby Ann” entered three charts on the Billboard. The song peaked at No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 4 on the Billboard Easy Listening. Marty Robbins was able to chart two number one singles in one year only.

About the Song

“Ruby Ann” is a name of the woman the narrator loves. He saw Ruby Ann’s ex-lover, and they had a chat. The man brags about his money and how Ruby Ann and he used to be together. However, the narrator doesn’t care because he knows that Ruby Ann loves him more than she loved her ex-lover. The narrator feels lucky that Ruby Ann chose him and loved him unconditionally.

You know that a person truly loves you when they ask for nothing. Love shouldn’t be because of anything. Just like in Marty Robbins song, you’ll know that Ruby Ann loves the narrator of the song because even if he is a poor man she loves him.
