Stay One More Night – Marie Little!

One of our favourite songs!

Marie Little introduced us to this great song by Martin Francis a while ago and it has been a firm favourite ever since. Dot often starts off our Thursday sessions leading it.

Here is Marie leading us in her version at the “sing around” at our weekend away last November in Wooler, accompanied by The Attic Band and Keith Perry on lead ukulele:

Martin Francis’s original version has more verses than this. Also, over the years that Marie has been covering it, the lyrics have shifted and morphed a bit too. I think that means it is a proper Folk Song!

Many thanks to Marie for permission to upload this video to YouTube so we can use it for practice between sessions.

If there are any errors in the Song Sheet, or in the chords and lyrics in the video subtitles, they are my mistakes not Marie’s!
