Subject: Lyr Add: Just One More Chorus (Davy Steele)
Our "In Harmony's Way" singaround in Auburn, California, closes every session with a parting song, chosen yearly. The song for 2014 was "Here Is My Home," by Si Kahn. We had the vote for the song for 2015, and the competition was stiff. Contenders were "Farewell to the House," Dave Webber's "Parting Song," "The Goodnight Song," Alan Bell's "So Here's to You," and "The Good in Living (Steven Sellors). All are worthy choices, but then somebody sang Davy Steele's "Just One More Chorus," and it won by a landslide.
I haven't found the lyrics for "Just One More Chorus," but I'll transcribe them tomorrow if nobody has them. But if you can save me the work, please post the lyrics in this thread.
Here's a link to a stunning performance of the song -
'Steele The Show' concert at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, 2011, to celebrate the life and songs of Davy Steele in the 10th year since his death in 2001. This is his last written song, performed by his youngest son, Jamie Steele with Siobhan Miller, Kathy Stewart, Sally Barker and Patsy Seddon. Also Andy Thorburn, Mary Macmaster, Donald Hay, Dick Gaughan, Eilidh Shaw and Mairearad Green. Introduced by Ian McCalman. What a wonderful song!
Just one more chorus before we depart,
Just one more song we all sing from the heart;
The harmonies ring to the words we all know
Just one more song, then we'll go
As far as I can tell, Davy Steele did not record this song. The only recordings I found on Spotify, was the one by his young son Jamie.
