When the Fiddler Has Played His Last Tune for the Night

This song is by Guy Carawan and appears on the live album Folk Friends (1978) by various artists.

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

There's nothing as quiet as
A night with no music
Or as dark as a night with no stars
And nothing as lonesome as
A cold lonely room
Wondering all night where you are

As we walked together
The music was playing
Whispered soft through the trees
With your arms around me
I whispered "I love you"
The words seemed to float
On the breeze

There's nothing as quiet as
A night with no music
Or as dark as a night with no stars
And nothing as lonesome as
A cold lonely room
Wondering all night where you are

Now Finbar has played
His last tune for the night
And Hannes has sung his last song
All the mandolins
And guitars and banjos are quiet
And all the good friends
Have gone home

There's nothing as quiet as
A night with no music
Or as dark as a night with no stars
And nothing as lonesome as
A cold lonely room
Wondering all night where you are
