The Old Lamplighter:The Browns. #5 in '60. CHORUS: G D He made the night a little brighter, F# Bm Wherever he would go. G D G D A7 The old lamp lighter, of long, long ago. G D His snowy hair was so much whiter, F# Bm G D Beneath the candle glow, the old lamp lighter, G D A7 D Of long, long ago. #1. D G D You'd hear the patter of his feet, D G D As he came toddling down the street. D G D His smile would hide a lonely heart, you see. D Em Em7 If there were sweethearts in the park, Em Em7 He'd pass a lamp and leave it dark. Em Em7 A7 Remembering the days that used to be. D D7 For he recalled when things were new. D D7 He loved someone who loved him too. D A7 D Who walks with him alone in memories. CHORUS: #2. D G D Now if you look up in the sky, D G D You'll understand the reason why, D G D The little stars at night are all aglow. Em Em7 He turns them on when night is near, Em Em7 He turns them off when dawn is here. D A7 D The little man who lived so long ago. CHORUS: ADD: G D He made the night a little brighter, F# Bm Wherever he would go. G D G D A D The old lamp lighter of long, long a..go. A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
