The William Tell bridge has always confused me.

I long took it to be the intro to The Eleven. Why were these lyrics
dropped from later versions of St. Stephen? When were they cut out?

I haven't heard them on any post '69 version that i have heard, about
the same time that The Eleven was dropped as well. Guess they just
didn't have the same effect/impact when going into Not Fade Away.

And, that segment is in key of B,with A playing a key role, which then
led to a jam in that key containing a D chord, which could drop nicely
into The Eleven. Not as effective if going into NFA (which, like the
main part of St Stephen, is E,A and D).

That makes much sense, thanks.
