Nellie

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Happy Daze (1974).

Wait till the sun sets Nellie and we'll send out for some wine
No not till we've earned full bellies, can we sit right down to dine?
Yes I know we've been out working since the sun came into sight
But the harvest's hardly over yet and the day's nay turned to night

Yes I know you left the stage behind when you were very small
But we have to keep on cutting wheat till the sun begins to fall
Do your thoughts deserve an Oscar for one single grain of corn?
When the men at the top had such good crops before these seeds were born

And when the corn stands in line
To be fed to the bellies of the hungry ones
Seems like the light of a smile
As it burns like a candle when the harvest is done
Then evening comes
Then evening comes

And when the corn stands in line
To be fed to the bellies of the hungry ones
Seems like the light of a smile
As it burns like a candle when the harvest is done
Then evening comes
Then evening comes
