I'm looking for the lyrics to a song "Where are you tonight" as sung by June Tabor - I'm not sure who wrote it. I actually know most of them, I just get stuck on one line - the bit before ...and the spirit will grow stronger...

Hi Bagpuss, Do you know if it`s the same song that Deanta did record?

I'm not sure. The chorus goes:

Where are you tonight I wonder And where will you be tonight when I call Will sleep for you come easy When I, alone, can't slumber Will you welcome the morning at another mans side.

A beautiful song, written by Andy M. Stewart.  Lyrics are available at Christian Walters' Silly Wizard page:  Where Are You.  Perhaps they ought to be here, too:

Where Are You

(ANDY M. STEWART)

Where are you tonight I wonder
And where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy,
Though I alone can't slumber
Will you welcome in the morning
At another man's side?

How easy for you the years slipped under
And left me a shadow the sun can't dispel
I built for you a tower of love and admiration
But I set you so high I could not reach myself.
I look through my window at a world filled with strangers
The face in my mirror is the one face I know
You have taken all that's in me, so my heart is in no danger
My heart is in no danger, but I'd still like to know

If there is a silence then it can be broken
If there beats a pure heart to her I will go
And time will work its healing and the spirit will grow stronger
Ah, but in the meantime I'd still like to know.

June Tabor may have changed a few words here and there.

Malcolm

And then there is the hauntingly beautiful:

Where, oh where, are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the world over
til I thought I found true love,
You met another, and (bfrttht!) you was gone.

Hee Haw Forever
