BC: Thank you. ... Thank y’all so very much, thank you for being here with us tonight. Thank you for sharing this, uh, benefit concert with us. So we’d like to, uh, play an old song for you now, we’d like to dedicate this song to you for being here tonight, for supporting us as always. Even though we’ve lost our minds and all that kind of stuff, thank you anyway. This one’s for you. You ready there, Tex?
Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
BC: This, uh, next song, uh, we were gonna put on our album, then we decided it was too long. And then, we still get criticized for the album being too long so you can imagine if this song was on it as well, it would’ve been really too long. So, this song, uh, most people never heard this song but I’d like to play it for you tonight, seems...fitting. This is called Let Me Give the World to You.
Let Me Give the World to You (Billy solo acoustic)
BC: Thank you. How y’all doin’ up there in the balcony, you look a little, uh, you alright? Heh heh heh. You ready there, D’arcy? I’m starting the song. 1234!
