(Nic Jones)

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

Now the sun it doth decline
Pour the beer and pour the wine,
We can lead your thoughts astray
From the world or from the day

We bring songs of history,
Love and war and mystery
We can lead you from despair
Or can cheer the darkening air

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...

got off the tape of the Ed Trickett, Cathy Barton, and Dave
Para Concert for FSGW. First heard Bob Walser do it at
Indian Neck, 1984. Based on a text by Sir Walter Scott, on
Nic Jones' album A Devil to A Stranger.
