​The Singer's Request

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the album From The Devil To A Stranger (1978).

Dark the night and long till day,
Do not bid us further stray.

Now the sun it doth decline,
Pour the beer and pour the wine;
Let us lead your thoughts astray
From the world and from the day.
Dark the night and long till day,
Do not bid us further stray.

We bring songs from history,
Love and war and mystery.
We can lead you from despair
Or can chill the darkening air.
Dark the night and long till day,
Do not bid us further stray.

You can choose to pass us by
With a cruel or scornful eye.
We will see the ending through;
Then we'll turn and say to you
Dark the night and long till day,
Do not bid us further stray.
