Look At Billy Run

Early in the morn
Early in the morn
Billy comes by with his game face on
Say’s party at the quarries you know the spot
See you when the moon is barking

I says cool didle didle
Cool diddle diddle
You bring the booze I’ll bring the fiddle
Tell everybody that needs to be told
Get ready for the second coming

Tell Crazy Kate
And Jimmy Ruse
And tell my cousin Eddy to bring his kazzoo
Tell Strung Out Steve to bring us some blow
We’ll all get some sleep tomorrow
Yea, we’ll all get some sleep tomorrow

All day long
All day long
I sit in my room just playing my songs
I string up my fiddle I rosin my bow
And I figure out “Jenny on the Railroad”

Billy stops by
Billy stops by
In his blue Subaru about quarter to nine
Says let’s hit the road it’s time to get down
Man just let me put my boots on
Just let me get my boots

Down at the quarries
Down at the quarries
Your free as a bird you don’t got any worries
Build up a fire let yourself go
Howl at the moon half crazy

We sing and we dance
We sing and we dance
Sway with the trees shake in our pants
Take another swig take another puff
And soon my ears start ringing

Sombody shouts
Sombody shouts
5.0. is coming get the hell out
I go north Billy goes west
And the darkness swallows us whole

Billy goes west
Billy goes west
Out in the dark right off the cliffs
The ground disappears from under his feet
Now we’re never gona see him again no
We’re never gona see him again

Look at Billy run
Look at Billy run
Through the trees at dawn
Look at Billy run

Look at Billy running now
Look at Billy running now
With a good buzz on
Look at Billy run
