Here are the lyrics for "Long Night" by Rawlins Cross.


Long night
This is what it all comes to
Oh, long night
This is what we all go through
Oh, long night
Another friend is gone
Oh, long night
Leaving us to carry on

Death is a mighty uniter
The defeat that comes to every fighter
Live on--the dawn will be brighter
Live on, live on, live on

Long night
Let me be with you
Oh, long night
I feel you need it too
Oh, long night
Rolling in each other's arms
Oh, long night
Keep each other safe from harm

War is a mighty uniter
The night can only make it tighter
Live on--the dawn will be brighter
Live on, live on, live on

Long night
This is what it all comes to
Oh, long night
This is what we all go through
Oh, long night
Another friend is gone
Oh, long night
Leaving us to carry on

Death is a mighty uniter
The defeat that comes to every fighter
Live on--the dawn will be brighter
Live on, live on, live on
Live on, live on, live on

Long night
Long night
Long night
Long night

Long night!

Liner notes: This song was written by Dave Panting as a tribute to the legendary Newfoundland fiddle player Emile Benoit. When Emile died a few years ago, he got one hell of a wake from all the younger Newfoundland musicians whom he had mentored, inspired and just been a great friend to. Far into that night, it occurred to Dave that Emile was entering into the longest night of his life...that's what he says in concert.

Rawlins Cross is on their farewell tour this year, be sure to catch them if you can. A great blend of Newfoundland spirit, singing and musicianship, with excellent original songs. I'm sure gonna miss them coming around.

Thanks Meebo.

Willie-O

Here it is.

It is one of the best songs I have ever heard. I heard it performed live years ago and it was far better than the YT linked above... Joey held the key note for twice as long as a human could do so and reverberated the entire playhouse... amazing.... powerful.... tear jerking. It all fit... the pipes, the Hran, the.. all of it. Perfect.

An adjunct... at the live performance I attended, Joey said... after the phone call advising that Emile (check out "Vive la Rose") had passed, the lyrics were written in twenty minutes.
