'Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town' -- Kenny Rogers (1969)

Wandering Words: "If I could move I'd get my gun and put her in the ground."

Ruby may be the most cold-hearted woman in country music -- not only cheating on a paralyzed war vet but also forcing him to watch as she prepares for her dates. The song's cuckold merely dreams of shooting his unfaithful mate, but apparently the man whom writer Mel Tillis based the song on actually did.
