Long night, so 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;
Love on - the dawn will be brighter,
Love on, love on, love 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.
Live on, live on, live on.

Long night....
Long night....
Long night....
Long night....

Long night!

Liner notes: "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."

Emile Benoit, fiddler and composer [1913-1992] from Black Brook, Port-Au-Port Peninsula, NL.
