COME ON BILLY BREAK OUT THE WINE

Live 23 Jul 1971 version


[Spoken intro:] "Come On Billy". It's "Come On Billy Break Out The Wine".

Alright
Three, four!

Come on Billy won't you break out the wine
I wanna see you pop that cork
Today's the day that we've all been waiting for
Now I'm gonna get down to some serious celebrating, oh yeah
We ain't been out of this one horse town
Since I was dropped off by the stork (ah, ah ah)

Nothing can stop me now (nothing can stop me now)
Got my ticket to New York (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh nothing can stop me board (no nothing can stop me now)
No no nothing can stop me now (no nothing can)

Yeah I'll say my goodbyes to Mary
She's a standing there at the door
I don't wanna leave that women so bluesy
I never left that girl before, oh no no
A man's gotta seek his fortune
And a man gotta seek his fame

I tell you when I get back (nothing can stop me now)
This whole town's gonna know my name (no nothing can stop me now)
No nothing can stop me board (no nothing can stop me now)
Not even my mama (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh no nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
No no no (no nothing can)

Mr. David on the organ

Come on Billy won't you break out the wine
I wanna see you pop that cork
Today is the day that we've all been waiting for
Oh mama, we're gonna get down to some serious celebrating

Hey Mr. Greyhound driver
It's good to see you right on time
All I wanna know is how far do we go (nothing can stop me now)
When do we arrive (not even mama can stop me now)
No no nothing can stop me board (no nothing can stop me now)
(Not even mama can stop me now)
No nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh no nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh no nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
(No nothing can stop me now)
