JUST ONE MORE CHORUS
(Davy Steele)
As sung by Jamie Steele on "Steele the Show" (2011)

1. The fiddlers are playing a tune in the bar
A slow air for those who've been banished afar
The music gets faster as the night it wears on
Soft through the air comes the strains of a song

CHORUS:
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

2. At festival time on some cold draughty stair
Or smoky old back room the singers are there
When everyone else has packed up and gone
They'll still be trying for just one more song

3. No matter what accent no matter what tongue
When people love singing they all sound as one
This gathering of singers will go on and on
Join in the chorus of just one more song

4. And though we may part soon, our own ways to find
And though we may scatter like seeds on the wind
Whenever we meet on these gathering days
We'll still sing the songs as we've sung them always
