COME ON

Live 17 Jul 1970 version


Well, come on, are you ready
Well, the temperature's rising and summer's coming on
Yeah, come on, don't let 'em catch you running 'round, yeah
Well, the time has time, let's get on

Well, come on, are you ready, whoa!
The bells are ringing and the people are singing their song
Yeah, come on, come on, don't you feel it
The world is crying for freedom, can't you hear it

Gather up your children
Bring them down to the riverside
And teach them well, show them good
They got no reason to hide
Whoa!

[Instrumental]

Well, gather up them children
Bring them down to the riverside
And treat them well, wish them good
They got no reason to hide

Come on, you gotta be a man, now
The time has come, and I'll be sure now
Come on, don't you feel it
The world is crying for freedom
The world is crying for freedom, can't you hear it
Hah-hee, hey!


Info

The above lyrics are for the live 17 Jul 1970 performance of COME ON at Sunshine In in Asbury Park, NJ.

Steel Mill performed on 17 and 18 Jul 1970 at Sunshine In in Asbury Park, NJ. These were double-bill shows, with Steel Mill headlining and Lotus opening. A good quality 58-minute soundboard recording of one of the two nights is in circulation among collectors. The tape does not represent the complete show; it seems to include the first three (including COME ON) and last two songs of the night. Brucebase has attributed this audio to 17 Jul 1970, but it could also be from the following night's show.
