A Town Called Jubilee

música e letra

Elton John

Lilly 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 ok and grabbed his old, black dog
As we piled on in and cut out through that late November fog

Dull as the passion, most of the men in the yard
Old Cotton grinned and waved goodbye while the auctioneers all played cards
And Mary at the Sunday, I walked down to Mose and back
Eat a TBone steak, watch a picture show for a dollar and a half

Come on, little sister, get on up from my knee
Gonna settle down some day IN A TOWN CALLED JUBILEE
Come on, 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, showing over what I can tell
And the hand we path that ?? up and down from the well
Gone to California, used to be what folks would say
Gather round these parts if it was me, I'd hoped that west bound stage

Come on, little sister, get on up from my knee
Gonna settle down some day IN A TOWN CALLED JUBILEE
Come on, 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
Lilly and Jake, the old black dog, a pine box, a rocking haul
All gone to Jubilee

Come on, little sister, get on up from my knee
Gonna settle down some day IN A TOWN CALLED JUBILEE
Come on, brother Jake, break on out and break free
Gonna set things right and set up house IN A TOWN CALLED JUBILEE
