"C'mon Billy" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
C'mon Billy
Come to me
You know I'm waiting
I love you endlessly

C'mon Billy
You're the only one
Don't you think it's time now
You met your only son

I remember
Lover's play
The corn was golden
We lay in it for days

I remember
The things you said
My little Billy,
Come to your lover's bed

Come home
Is my plea
Your home now is
Here with me
Come home
To your son
Tomorrow might never come

C'mon Billy
You look good to me
How many nights now
Your child inside of

Don't forget me
I had your son
Damn thing went crazy
But I swear you're the only one

Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me

    General CommentIts a song of innocence lost and the exquisite feeling one gets before resent sets in towards that person before you realise that they never had beneficial intentions. This song is co-dependency licking its wounds

    The woman is obvioulsy pregnant and left high and dry by a transient man, such as a sailor.
