About the Song
Richard Hayman's biggest hit was the 1953 single "Ruby". Hayman took the theme for the motion picture "Ruby Gentry", and through his specially stylized arrangement, utilizing a harmonica as the solo instrument with a large, quasi-symphonic orchestra, the song zoomed to the top of the hit parade all over the world and brought about a renewed interest in the harmonica.

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets.
