Does anyone know who recorded the song 'The Fiddler'? (Chorus goes 'There's nothing so quiet as a night without music, as dark as a night with no stars')

"When the fiddler has played his last tune for the night". The jacket notes on the Mill Run Dulcimer Band recording of it says they learned it from a Guy Carawan recording.

When the fiddler has played his last tune for the night
The singer has sung his last song
All the mandolins guitars and banjos are quiet
And the loud noisy crowd has gone home.

Nothing's as quiet as a night without music
Or as dark as a night without stars
Nothing's as lonesome as a cold lonely room
Wondering all night where you are.

As we walked along the music was playing
It whispered so soft through the trees
With your arms around me I whispered "I love you"
The words seemed to float on the breeze.

Then when you told me that you would be leaving
I couldn't believe it was true
I stayed at the station long after you'd gone
Wondering what happened to you.

When the fiddler has played his last tune for the night...etc.

Now I walk alone and the music's still playing
But it's not the same without you
My days are endless now that you're gone
My nights are so lonely and blue.

Nothing's as quiet...etc.

Charlie Moore
Additional verses by Kendall Morse.

I think I heard this from Lester Flatt.
It was also recorded by Priscilla Herdman and Yodeling Slim Clarke.
