A Town Called Jubilee (Elton John)

Lily pulled a horseshoe From a pile of junk Said "I'm gonna keep this good luck Piece of iron inside my trunk" The boy just whispered "Okay" And grabbed his old black dog As we piled on in and cut out Through that late November fog Oh yeah Dull as a ploughshare Rustin' in the yard Old Cotton grinned And they waved goodbye While the auctioneers all played cards On every other Sunday I'd walk down to Moe's and back Eat a t-bone steak, watch a picture show For a dollar-and-a-half C'mon little sister, get up off of my knee Gonna settle down someday In A Town Called Jubilee C'mon brother Jake, break on out and break free Gonna set things right And set up house In A Town Called Jubilee That fire came out of nowhere Short of what I can tell Hand to hand we passed that bucket Up and down from the well Goin' to California Used to be what folks would say Down around these parts, if it was me I'd have hopped that West-bound stage C'mon little sister, get up off of my knee Gonna settle down someday In A Town Called Jubilee C'mon brother Jake, break on out and break free Gonna set things right And set up house In A Town Called Jubilee One last Hallelujah A little less sympathy Lily and Jake, the old black dog A pinewood box, a rocking horse All gone to Jubilee C'mon little sister, get up off of my knee Gonna settle down someday In A Town Called Jubilee C'mon brother Jake, break on out and break free Gonna set things right And set up house In A Town Called Jubilee
