COME ON BILLY BREAK OUT THE WINE

Live 29 Jul 1971 version


One two three four, go!

Come on Billy won't you break out the wine
I wanna see you pop that cork (ooh ooh)
Today's the day that we've all been waiting for
Gonna get down to some serious celebrating
We ain't been out of this one horse town
(Ah, ah ah)

Oh nothing can stop me now (nothing can stop me now)
To get to New York (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)

I'll say my goodbye to Mary
She's standing there at the door
I don't wanna leave that women so bluesy
I never left that girl before
A man's gotta seek his fortune
A man gotta seek his fame (ah, ah ah)

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 no nothing can stop me board (no nothing can stop me now)
Not even my mama (no nothing 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)

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 no no

Hey Mr. Greyhound driver
It's good to see you right on time (ah ah ah ah)
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)
Oh nothing can stop me board (no nothing can stop me now)
Not even my mama (not even mama can stop me now)
Nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh nothing can stop me now (no nothing can stop me now)
Oh 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)

(Taken from Lelands)

The Bruce Springsteen Band played two shows (9:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.) on 29 Jul 1971 at D'Dcene in South Amboy, NJ. These were double-bill shows, with The Bruce Springsteen Band headlining and Sunny Jim opening. An excellent quality soundboard recording of The Bruce Springsteen Band set from one of the shows is in the possession of a private collector. It consists of 12 songs, clocks at about 114 minutes, and is certainly the complete set. Three songs from the recording, including COME ON BILLY BREAK OUT THE WINE, have been circulating on bootlegs since the early nineties, but the rest remains in the private collector's hands.
